The anonymous woman, who spoke in a mother's Facebook group in Sydney, was frustrated that her brother forbade her access to the baby until she had the flu shot.

She asked the rest of the group members if the & # 39; selfish & # 39; was not to have her entire family vaccinated for the flu before she saw the baby.

In a birth announcement presented to the woman by her sister-in-law, the family asked all family members to consult your doctor for information about receiving whooping cough and flu vaccines & # 39 ;.

& # 39; If you can't or don't want to, that's cool! Little Miss is waiting for you to come after her immunizations, & it continued.

At the bottom of the announcement, the last words were & # 39; NO VAX, NO VISIT & # 39 ;.

& # 39; I'm becoming an aunt for the first time and my son is so excited to meet his new nephew, & # 39; wrote the woman.

What are the rules regarding the flu vaccine?

The NSW government recommends that all visitors be vaccinated against the flu during the flu season.

& # 39; The flu shot is the best protection and the vaccine is safe for both you and your baby when given during pregnancy, & # 39; according to the website.

& # 39; Everyone who takes care of your baby should also receive a flu shot, including other family members and relatives. & # 39;

& # 39; I was thinking of texting my brother & # 39; and to say: & # 39; We have chosen not to get flu vaccines and that is our choice, but we have had everyone else. If you are still uncomfortable while in the area, we respect that & # 39 ;, & # 39; she said.

But despite saying that she would respect their decision, she would be & # 39; absolutely insane & # 39; if they still said no.

Many of the group members called her & # 39; selfish & # 39; and & # 39; passive aggressive & # 39; because they tried to go against the wishes of the parents.

The wife's brother and sister-in-law are not alone in their demands, with an Australian mother who recently asked for advice on how to get her friends and family to agree to vaccination before they visit him.

& # 39; I need advice. Baby # 3 will be available in mid-July. "I made sure everyone had their Boostrix centuries ago, but I feel uncomfortable and intrusive asking everyone to get a flu shot," she said.

& # 39; I believe 100 percent in vaccination and I don't want the risk to be fair to ask the Boostrix to be an occasional fight. Has anyone got ideas about how I can say "just get your f ******* flu shot!"

Many people said the policy & # 39; no vax, no visit & # 39; was perfectly suitable for the first six weeks until the baby itself was immunized.

& # 39; Healthy adults who don't get the flu shot are ignorant of their own privilege. Herd of immunity depends on healthy people receiving the injection, & a person said.

& # 39; Not doing that is incredibly selfish and potentially deadly. & # 39;

Others did not agree and said that new mothers should not be able to & # 39; ask & # 39; to do something.

& # 39; I think you can push it very close, you always see who will play an important caring role with your child … maybe you can offer to book or even pay for it? & # 39;

Another mother disagreed: & The flu is deadly, especially for a newborn. You can absolutely demand it, it's your newborn baby and you can demand whatever you want. & # 39;

Public health noted that pregnant women should always be vaccinated before birth as a first measure so that the antibodies continue to live in the baby for the first few weeks of their life.

Then family members – or those who are going to live with the child – must be vaccinated as a precautionary measure.

There are many examples of friendly birth announcements that encourage families to be vaccinated before birth, but & # 39; cause them to wash their hands & # 39; Before they hold the baby, it will also help, she said.
