You should receive a whooping cough or flu vaccine at least two weeks before meeting a baby as it takes about two weeks to develop antibodies after vaccination. It's important that everyone's vaccinations are up to date as family members are at risk for infection when one member of a household has a respiratory illness.

Fully vaccinated people are at least 3x less likely to be infected with COVID-19, according to a new CDC analysis. Among people with COVID-19, fully vaccinated people were half as likely to need emergency care or hospitalization, and 7x less likely to die from COVID-19 than unvaccinated people. Protect yourself and your community by becoming fully vaccinated, receiving your booster dose when recommended, and engaging in recommended prevention steps (like wearing masks or physical distancing in indoor public places where spread is high or substantial).
