My Sister in law hasn't vaccinated her kids. They are 1, 3, and 5 years old. Can they safely visit my new infant? If not, what strong articles can I show her to convince her? (she won't take it well).
The Why vaccinate and If you choose not to vaccinate sections on ImmunizeBC may be helpful when discussing the importance of vaccines to prevent/stop the spread of vaccine preventable diseases. Community Immunity or Herd Immunity is especially important for infants who are too young to be vaccinated (less than 2 months of age). A list of credible trust-worthy websites on vaccines are found here.
You may want to discuss this further with a health care provider or a public health nurse at a your local health unit.
