How To Ask Loved Ones To Get Vaccinated Before Meeting Your Newborn

20 November 2020

When my close friend had her baby in January 2019, she and her husband asked family and friends who wanted to hold their newborn to get a flu shot first. I had never even thought about what vaccines to get to be around a newborn, but her request made perfect sense. I get my flu shot every year, so I loaded up a friend who had never had one and we went together. We sent selfies to our pregnant friend showing off our red Band-Aids and telling her how excited we were to meet her baby.
