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.
