We've only asked the grandparents and my brother to get the flu and Dtap
vaccines because they will be around our daughter regularly. These are
people that will be watching her, so that's why we asked. They all agreed, and some even had them done already.
other people, I will just ask that they stay away if they feel sick/are
sick and wash their hands before holding/touching the baby.
don't buy the "I don't get the shot, and I never get sick" or "people
who get the flu shot get the flu" stuff. That's crap IMO. But, I also
know that I can't ask my friends and extended family to get these shots.That's their decision.
Talk to your future child's pediatrician about what he/she recommends.
