What is your opinion of flu vaccinations?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Interviews and photos by Katie Straub

"I'm generally pro-vaccine, but flu vaccines have been shown to not be very effective. In this case, I have changed. I got a vaccination because H1N1 is going around again, and the vaccine is effective against it."

Creon Levit, San Francisco

"I don't know much about the vaccination of the flu."

Jan Filipiwski, Poland

"I feel pretty good about flu shots. I got one this year and skipped the flu, and I would do it again."

Coco Harris, San Mateo

"You should probably get your flu shot, so that people around you don't get sick."

Alicia Hoffmann, Mountain View

"I have concerns about vaccines as they're made in the 21st century. My husband's had some fairly serious reactions to his flu vaccines. We decided that we aren't going to have them until the problem has been addressed."

Marjorie Zimmerman, Menlo Park
