Re "Flu Kills 202 in state under age 65" (Capitol & California, Feb. 8): It should be mandatory for flu shots. Making shots mandatory would help reduce flue from spreading.
Not even healthy, young and middle- aged adults can be sure of escaping this flu, and may end up dying from it. Now that everyone is required to have health insurance, health providers could help prevent the spreading by requiring that all members be vaccinated or they will be penalized by increased premium rates. Those who are not being vaccinated are the ones who are infecting others.
