After October 31st, 2010, we are asking that our family and friends wanting to come & visit us (in our home), have the flu shot by that day. We are healthy people that normally can fight the flu on our own, and for the most part I don't like the idea of immunizing for this particular sickness. In our current situation, it's absolutely necessary, and we can't take the chance of Joel getting it. It would be dangerous for him, and his doctors have STRONGLY advised that people with continued contact with him be immunized against it during flu/cold season.
Know that we completely understand if you decline/object to getting the vaccine. We love you anyway! Immunizations are a touchy subject, and if your beliefs are against them, we are ok with that....but you have to stay away from the house for this season. :) There are other options for us to communicate...I'll never turn down a trip to starbucks!
Thank you so much for your cooperation on this. One love-
