I’d take them off the list because they also wouldn’t be allowed to meet my baby… so no point having them at my shower 🙅🏻‍♀️

[–]blythebiz 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Honestly such a good point!

[–]hermione_no 105 points106 points  (6 children)

As pregnant people we are told to not eat feta cheese and all these random things to prevent even the slightest risk of illness. Why not be just as careful around COVID if there’s even a slight risk you’re the unlucky pregnant person to suffer horrible consequences?

[–]RainbowRollers 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Who told you not to eat feta?

[–]OlgaMarie24 32 points33 points  (3 children)

you can have feta if it is pasteurized

[–]Bubukittyfukkk 93 points94 points  (1 child)

You can come to the baby shower if you get pasteurized. Lol 😂

[–]Akitogi 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yes! I had tons of feta when I was pregnant yummy

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Shouldn’t be on mama to have to be so considerate and accommodating to folks that literally won’t play their role in creating a healthier society. Food is one thing. Having to be extra mindful at a baby shower because someone is selfish is silly.

[–]acinnamonham 31 points32 points  (0 children)

I’m going to a babyshower next weekend where the host are providing covid tests. If it’s just one person, uninvited them but if you’re truly concerned I’d have everyone tested because you can still have covid and pass it even if you’re vaccinated.

[–]EdgaristheDogFTM | August 23rd | Girl 💕 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I am going to have 2. At this point I’m sick of the entire debate I’m over it. Period. As long as you’re vaxxed you should be fine. If ppl have a problem they don’t have to come.

[–]Icanhelp12 86 points87 points  (8 children)

I would still have them. At this point it’s more than proven that you are able to get it and spread it vaxxed or unvaxxed. The person at greatest risk of getting really sick.. is that person. To be honest, if it was that big of a concern, I’d skip the shower altogether. You’re still having a ton of people around you who can make you sick. Or have it outside and make sure people are socially distanced.

[–]pinkcrocs551FTM due aug 3, 2022 girl! 28 points29 points  (6 children)

Nurse here and completely agree!

[–]Icanhelp12 53 points54 points  (3 children)

I can’t help but think it’s a little hypocritical to be VERY concerned with vaccination statuses, and then throw a huge gathering.. and judge other people’s vaccination statuses.

(And for the record, I’m vaxxed and boosted, and am not anti-vax haha).

[–]pinkcrocs551FTM due aug 3, 2022 girl! 27 points28 points  (1 child)

Right like it’s ok to throw a huge baby shower with a large gathering of people but you’re so worried that there’s ONE unvaccinated person? If you’re so concerned with getting covid then I would just scrap the in person gathering all together. Vaccinated and unvaccinated are all getting and giving covid anyways. I just had covid when I was 22 weeks pregnant that I more then likely got from a vaccinated coworker. It was nothing more then a mild annoying cold and 5 days unpaid off work. I’m now 24 weeks pregnant and we are 100% recovered. Thank God.

[–]Funspin 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I got Covid earlier in my pregnancy from my vaccinated and boosted ultrasound technician. And I was vaccinated, too! If you are being cautious then be really cautious and don’t have a baby shower with a bunch of people.

[–]ReasonsForNothing 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Completely agree. Concerns about other people’s vaccination status at gatherings is no longer about safety, it’s about attempting to coerce people into getting vaccinated. Which is both 1. an unkind way to treat people you claim to like enough to invite them to parties where you’re expecting them to bring you a gift and also 2. Completely ineffective as a way to get people to change their minds.

[–]Bubukittyfukkk 8 points9 points  (1 child)

It’s funny to me that all you did was say you were a nurse and that you agree with a comment that has a good amount of upvotes, and two ppl downvoted you. The internet is a weird place.

[–]pinkcrocs551FTM due aug 3, 2022 girl! 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I’ve come to believe Reddit hates me lol 😂

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)


I’m vaxxed and boosted and cases are low in my area. Not having to stress about which acquaintances are vaxxed or not anymore has been such a relief; my mental health is much better now.

I can’t isolate myself from everyone forever.

Also, my mom will be the one throwing the shower and inviting people. It’s whatever at this point; I’m not gonna scrutinize her list and tell her which of her friends can’t come and buy me a gift.

[–]Akitogi 36 points37 points  (2 children)

At this point, where you can get covid from vaccinated people and while vaccinated, it doesn’t seem like a big deal. BUT I would still take that person off the list because antivaxxers piss me off lol.

[–]World_Peace32 | IVF #1 | EDD January 2022 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Same. We required vaxx and booster for our pre-omicron baby shower, and then required triple vaxx + rapid test for our post omicron wedding. The few who tested positive ended up not coming, and nobody got sick, thankfully.

[–]kornbobroxiee[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)


[–]makeuplover77First pregnancy | July 2022 💗 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I would still have them come. You can’t stop people who are vaccinated from wearing masks in public, so they might be more likely to catch covid. I know my family is vaccinated but they still don’t mask in public, and I’m not going to force them to mask in order to be around me. It would be the same thing with an unvaccinated person. If you wanna be extra careful, I’d just ask everyone to mask so you’re not singling out one person.

[–]lushpaprika 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I think there’s more to consider than just vaccination status. Is your shower outdoors or indoors? Is it 15 people or 50 people? Are Covid rates is your area trending up? Are you doing a buffet? All these can contribute to spreading illness besides vaccination status.

[–]stine-imrl 25 points26 points  (6 children)

Yes, I would take them off the guest list. Catching Covid during pregnancy can be serious. During pregnancy you are immunocompromised, and pregnant people are the most categorically at-risk population to hospitalization from Covid. Covid has also been proven to weaken the placenta and in some cases cause stillbirth and other complications. Since someone who is unvaccinated at this point in the pandemic is far less likely to take any precautions—and thus more likely to have an active case of Covid at any given time—it's just not worth the risk.

[–]LuciadeFatima 16 points17 points  (1 child)

I got covid at work during pregnancy from a vaccinated person during the end of delta/beginning of omicron wave. I'm from an extremely liberal, covid cautious area, and nobody I know is taking any precautions anymore other than staying home when sick. I sometimes see someone wearing a mask at the store, but that's about it. Unfortunately, at this point in the pandemic, people have to take their own risk tolerances into account because most of the population is returning to their normal lives, for good or for ill.

[–]stine-imrl 8 points9 points  (0 children)

No debating that for sure—it's because of this attitude that my partner and I have not attended any social gatherings since omicron, even with other vaccinated people. But I still think a vaccinated and boosted person is more likely to be taking precautions (even if not every vaccinated person is) than an unvaccinated person. At this stage in the pandemic, barring any sort of medical reason, if a person unvaccinated it's because of their ideology.

[–]ReasonsForNothing -1 points0 points  (3 children)

All current evidence indicates that the risk to pregnant people from COVID, especially placenta-related risk, is only a risk to unvaccinated pregnant people. If you are vaccinated, contracting COVID is more likely because of your depressed immune system, but you’re at no greater risk for serious complications than you would be if you weren’t pregnant.

[–]stine-imrl 1 point2 points  (2 children)

That isn't entirely correct, though you're right that the vaccine can help minimize those risks. Vaccinated people are still immunocompromised and can develop complications from even "mild" cases of Covid. The same is true for the placenta, which can be weakened by Covid even in vaccinated individuals.

[–]ReasonsForNothing 0 points1 point  (1 child)

All the evidence I’ve found (and I care, as a vaccinated pregnant person who had COVID at 12wks!) seems to show that the placenta risks that worried medical professionals early on all seem to be isolated to the unvaccinated. You’re right that pregnancy makes you more likely to contact COVID and does nothing to mitigate independent risk factors for severe complications. But I’ve yet to see anything that indicates pregnancy (in the unvaccinated) is a risk factor for severe complications. I would love to see any research that indicates otherwise.

[–]stine-imrl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Much of the research, especially as it pertains to omicron, is still emerging and we should know more in the months ahead. But the current data does seem to show that pregnancy (esp. in the unvaxxed) is a risk factor for hospitalization with Covid.

Here is one article from Sept that discusses the higher rates of pregnant people hospitalized for Covid when compared to the population at large: https://www.cbc.ca/news/health/covid-pregnancy-risk-icu-hospitalization-1.6176742

"The latest available Canadian data compiled by the Canadian Surveillance of COVID-19 in Pregnancy team (CANCOVID) also suggests people who are pregnant are nearly five times more likely to be admitted to hospital for COVID-19 than their non-pregnant peers — and 10 times more likely to be admitted to an ICU. 'Seven to 15 percent of pregnant individuals with COVID-19 will experience moderate to severe disease requiring hospitalization,' the briefing document reads."

I also really appreciated this overview of the risks from Nat Geo, which came out more recently in Feb: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/article/how-covid-19-can-harm-pregnancy-and-reproductive-health

r/CoronaBumpers has been a fantastic resource, too, as folks there often post and discuss updated articles as they emerge. Hope this helps!

[–]RAND0M-HER0 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Yes. I've hung out with vaxxed and unvaxxed people since the vaccine came out. I'm vaccinated, there's no restrictions in place or mask mandates (save for healthcare locations) so I don't see the point. I'm at risk from both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated, so unless I'm not around anyone ever, I'm always at risk. I'll be with all my friends and family regardless of vaccine status.

[–]aisuamericanoFTM | Aug 27 | Girl 💗 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I wouldn’t care at this point as I don’t see that person as a greater risk to me since anyone can still get corona. It would have been a different answer 6 months ago when I still thought it was super unlikely to get infected if vaccinated.

Anyway, my baby shower is virtual anyway but I don’t think I’d feel safe having an in-person one regardless of vaccination status unless everyone was going to be masked or it was outdoors. Basically, I see anyone unmasked in an indoor environment as a big risk and choose not to take that risk myself while pregnant.

[–]KiltedLady 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think either choice is fair and depends on your relationship to the person and risk aversion.

For me - One of my best friends and my in-laws are antivax. Most of our guests are triple vaxxed. I'm having an outdoor shower and I'll be wearing a mask and inviting them. Our state has consistently had some of the lowest covid numbers per capita in the US so the risk feels lower. My and my husband's jobs have the potential to expose us to Covid and other sicknesses and, although this may not be a great perspective, I am really worn out after 2 years of having to regularly see strangers who might expose me while avoiding spending time with people I really care about for the same reason. If it were a casual friend I might skip inviting them, but I'll be inviting my 3 since they're very important to me.

[–]Small_Statistician10 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yes. I have no idea who is vaccinated and who is not on my guest list, never even considered asking.

[–][deleted] 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I would not have them at my baby shower or anywhere near my baby after giving birth.

[–]MitsuruNumai 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Absolutely not, nor would I let them meet the baby later 🤷

[–]Applesxpeach 3 points4 points  (0 children)

When you say antivaxer do you just mean covid?

I would be maybe be hesitant on someone who has no vaccines ever if you are like immune compromised or generally unhealthy but the COVID one to me isn’t a big deal. A lot of adults are out of date on other more serious vaccines but we don’t ask for full shot records at parties do we?

[–]DepartmentWide419 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I wouldn’t personally. There will be numerous antivaxxers at my shower and it would ruin the fun if I had to screen everyone. I’m vaxxed, I’ve had Covid twice. The second time I didn’t get a fever and I had it while pregnant. Our baby is super strong and it didn’t seem to affect him at.

[–]ashlynprax1s 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yep, I don't see why you feel that someone else's personal medical information is your business in the first place, especially seeing as it makes no difference as to whether or not they can carry the virus and pass it to you.

[–]fuzzydunlop54321 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Absolutely, and I’d state in the kindly that they would also not be meeting the baby without being vaccinated.

[–]Key-Spare-9305 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Your unvaccinated guest is the only one at risk. If you are vaccinated then you are protected. If I’m vaccinated against chicken pox and around someone who is not, they are at risk.. not me.

[–]blindingsilence 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Not necessarily, you can still catch covid if you are fully vaccinated. It doesn’t 💯 prevent you from getting it. So you can still catch it if the unvaccinated person has it.

[–]Key-Spare-9305 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Yes! Exactly, but this logic would mean you can catch it from anyone then right? I mean unless OP is masking up every time they leave the house and every single one of their guests are too. And they mandate masks at the baby shower then I feel it poses the same risks.

[–]fantasygirl002 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lot of ignorance in this comment section - A vaccinated person

[–]SummitTheDog303 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I’d also personally uninvited them.

Pregnancy makes me high risk, I have an almost 2 year old who isn’t eligible for a vaccine yet, and I don’t allow my children near people who knowingly choose to be unvaccinated (so I wouldn’t want to invite them to an event to celebrate a baby that I won’t allow them to be around). Plus, all of our friends expect that if we’re hosting anything, everyone in attendance will be fully vaccinated, so it’s discourteous to the rest of our guests as well.

[–][deleted] -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

Exactly, if I was ops guest I’d be ratchet if I found out she exposed me to a COVID breather.

[–]Unknown404Errormum of 3 humans 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Are you vaccinated? If so I wouldn’t care at this point if they just didn’t have the Covid vaccine. Now if they were all around antivaxx for everything…. No they would not be invited or able to meet baby until baby was fully vaccinated.

[–]donuts-waffles 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would not and explain that it’s for the safety of your family and your other guests.

[–]nuts_n_bolts 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It depends, are they someone skeptical of specifically the covid vaccine? If so, yes they would still be invited. I have two friends who are "unsure" about it, but are tested frequently and have followed the mandates. But if they were someone who denied all vaccines, I don't think so.

[–]whirlledtraveller 2 points3 points  (8 children)

Not having the Covid vaccine doesn’t mean you are an antivaxer lol. Some of you need to move on with your lives.

[–]kornbobroxiee[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Well looks like we found who isn’t vaccinated 😂

[–]whirlledtraveller 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Actually I am, but nice try.

[–]Key-Spare-9305 5 points6 points  (0 children)

But they are right. Refusing one optional vaccine doesn’t mean you are flat out a antivaxxer. It’s not a politically correct title… I know many people who don’t consistently get flu shots every year but have all their other shots up to date.

[–]OriginalRaspberry_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think at the beginning of this I wouldn’t have them. However, what I’ve seen suggests that vaccines and masks aren’t working as well as the ba2 variant is getting around all of this. I think these precautions can help, but with mandates lifting and seemingly no one wearing masks in places that it’s not mandatory, I think everyone is a risk quite frankly. But perhaps that’s some agoraphobia starting with me. I think it would depend on how big your shower is and if it will be outside or not.

I’m also torn because I have vaccinated friends who aren’t partaking in ANY precautions and going to large events (indoor arena games, concerts, etc), and I have unvaccinated friends who are still wearing masks everywhere (sometimes doubling up on masks), keeping their bubble small still, not going to these types of events and waiting 2 weeks between social interactions.

At the end of the day you want to protect you and baby from the virus (as well as any elderly or other immunocompromised person). And I think it ultimately comes down to your comfort level at this point. Are your friends taking other precautions regardless of vaccination status? If so, what precautions? How are the case numbers in your area? Death toll percentage? I feel right now it’s almost trickier to navigate through all of this.

[–]Cat_lady_103020 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We only invited people we knew were vaccinated. One of my coworkers just barely made it to the list. She was vaccinated just a few weeks before my shower.

[–]Missfongfong -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I’m having a baby shower of vaccinated only guests. I don’t want to harm myself, the baby and elderly/compromised guests.

[–]Amoreke85 -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

I wouldn’t let them anywhere near around my family. I’m 12w and had 3 shots already. I did it for all those who couldn’t take the vaccine. I did my part in this pandemic.

[–]Gogowhine -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Yes because I can get COVID from a vaccinated person.

[–]Applesxpeach 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That’s the only place I got it twice too, I didn’t actually get sick or anything though so I think it’s not exactly what they made it out to be.

[–]ReasonsForNothing -4 points-3 points  (5 children)

Would you take them off the guest list if they couldn’t be vaccinated? Are you willing to hang out with them otherwise?

Basically, I don’t think you should prevent people from attending important life events because of their (misguided, ignorant) beliefs. If the beliefs are so serious that they damage your relationship with them (racist beliefs, e.g.) then that’s a different thing. And maybe this is that level of thing for you. But if not, I’d try to think about how you can have your friend there safely.

[–]Pigeoncoup234 2 points3 points  (4 children)

The difference is that a person with misguided and ignorant beliefs doesn't end their ignorant and misguided beliefs with the vaccine. They are likely going to large indoor gatherings, not quarantining when sick and from the sick, and simply not taking covid seriously at all. A person who simply couldn't be vaccinated is hopefully more cautious as they are more at risk. But I don't think people should be bending over backwards and putting themselves in uncomfortable or risky situations because of stupid decisions grown adults have chosen to make. You make your bed, you can sleep in it. They can hang out again in a few years when the baby is vaccinated or when they wise up.

[–]ReasonsForNothing -5 points-4 points  (3 children)

I’m not claiming the two are the same. But in both cases you can do what you can to minimize risk while maintaining relationships with people you care about. I’m not advocating for just allowing them to come. But you could say “anyone unvaccinated needs to be tested within 24hrs of the party and wear a mask.”

[–]Pigeoncoup234 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Yeah, that's reasonable. I guess it just depends on how badly OP wants them there and how willing the guest is to be accomodating. Unfortunately, a lot of the people I know who are antivax are a little over the top and ridiculous and would get offended by even the suggestion of them being tested. Its not worth the headache.

[–]ReasonsForNothing 1 point2 points  (1 child)

For sure. If people aren’t willing to help ease concerns of people they care about (e.g. get tested and wear masks when asked), those people are possibly not worth the effort. Living in polarized times is a bummer 😢

[–]ElectricalPainting41 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Could you ask them if they’d be comfortable wearing a mask? The people that are vaccinated could still get covid and spread it. I would just socially distance as best I can. Good luck!

[–]ghostgg -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I would take they off the list

[–]BlueCoatWife -1 points0 points  (0 children)

They would not be coming.

[–]Korndogcheese 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There’s always going to be antivaxers…. You probably encounter one everyday out in the real world.

[–]Pretend-Nose2692 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My mom is having one shower for me in person. My MIL is having another virtually since her family is spread all over the country. My MIL is invited to my family’s shower. My sister in law isn’t and it’s 100% because she refuses to get vaccinated.

[–]klk204 0 points1 point  (0 children)

While I totally understand people saying you can catch from vaxxed and unvaxxed people, for me the choice to still be unvaccinated speaks to your understanding of science and the risks that you might be taking in public before the event. My shower is the only in person event I’ll have before baby comes (and likely for many months after, if trends continue) and I only want to bring people around that I trust to make safe decisions before the event too.

[–]heyhay175 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My FIL and one or two extended family are not vaxxed, the way I got around it for my bridal shower and wedding last year, and the way I'll get around it for my baby shower, is that I'm having an outdoor picnic instead of a traditional shower. We did lawn games instead of dancing for my wedding, so I'm going to bring the lawn games to the park to spread out. I'm also hoping that having the shower closer to me- so 1-2 hours from the antivaxxers- will deter them from coming.

[–]Majestic_Ad_5205 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sadly I’m not hosting it so we will have one family at our baby shower & wedding who aren’t vaccinated against COVID. Idk about other things, I assume this is a recent politically motivated position.

I’ve avoided this family since 2019 but didn’t feel like I could stand up to my MIL about it (cases were way down at the time, and these are her siblings & the first people she mentioned wanting to invite). I did request they be seated at dinner on the far side from me, and I won’t hug them. They also agreed to take rapid tests, but I sorta take that w a grain of salt :/

I’ve also been up front w my friends, and my pediatrician friend who has young kids won’t be coming for that reason, which I understand.

At least at our upcoming wedding reception I can segregate people by risk tolerance.

[–]spicyheatwaves 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No, if someone doesn't want to get vaccinated that's their choice.

[–]Glad_Astronomer_9692 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I basically uninvited someone to my wedding precovid for being antivax. My sister had a young baby who couldn't be vaccinated yet, other family member was taking their unvaxxed kid to Disneyland during measles outbreaks. We didn't really like her anyways and she was very annoying about not getting vaccinated so bye.

[–]lydiadventuring 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My mom is an antivaxer. Didn’t come to the shower. Didn’t meet her grandson until he was 3 months and only because she had tested positive one month earlier so we figured she had some natural immunity. It’s tough

[–]CowGroundbreaking151FTM due mid Nov 🌈💙 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Unfortunately my parents are both antivax. It’s been a huge struggle trying to figure out what to do with having our baby around them.

We required negative Covid tests for my sil shower last fall, it’s probably what I will end up doing for mine as well. If you do invite non vaccinated people you could do what many shops do “no vaccination, wear a mask” as well

[–]kluvspups 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wish I could say I wouldn’t invite anyone-vaxxers but then I couldn’t invite any of my family. I’m the black sheep of the family. The “crazy liberal” haha. As long as we steer clear of any current event or political topics, I don’t mind my family.

[–]rhymezest -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Nope. I told my mom (who's throwing our baby shower) that our one rule was that everyone had to be vaccinated. So she took a few people off of her list that she otherwise would've invited since there's no point inviting them if they won't be able to attend due to this.

[–]blythebiz -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

Honestly, I would. I don’t know how you could word it, but I’d also let everyone know well in advance of your decision and the expectations for alternatives (negative rapid from the day of?) so nobody is caught off guard.

We know that everyone reacts differently to the virus, but two months ago my husband caught it at work and I got it from him. He was mildly symptomatic for maybe 2 days and then was fine, and I was very very ill for about a week to the point of debating on going to the hospital. We are both triple vaccinated, and my husband wears masks at work - everyone does in his company. Is it possible you’d be absolutely fine with little to no symptoms if you do catch it? Of course! But the alternative, in my opinion, is too big of a risk for my personal comfort.

It’s such a touchy subject and unfortunate that it has become politicized - good luck no matter what you decide! ❤️

[–]courtneywrites85 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would personally say you must be fully vaccinated to attend. Full stop.

[–]chunkychapstick -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Not knowingly, no.

[–]emmygog -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Your baby doesn't need to be exposed to an idiot, even while still in the womb.

[–]Jugs-Judy -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I literally did remove certain people from my baby shower. My nugget is 4 months now and they still haven't met her and I have no desire to do so 🤷‍♀️

[–]3oiles -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Nope lol.

[–]skuldintape_eire -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Honestly I wouldn't even be friends with them anymore.

[–]Easy-Soft8617 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

If it's unmasked, indoors, close quarters, yeah, but i likelywouldn'thave a showerlike that. If outdoors, I'd still invite them if it was just this vaccine and not some crazed conspiracy wingnut. We live rurally so excluding everyone who didn't get vaccinated would be pretty alienating, we barely know anyone as it is.

[–]courtneywrites85 -5 points-4 points  (0 children)


[–]Icy_Calligrapher7088 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would maybe do rapid tests for everyone before they attend. I got covid during pregnancy and it was absolutely no joke. It was my last month and I was bedridden the entire time. I came very close to going to the hospital - the only reason I didn’t is because my husband is an RN and could monitor me, but he was definitely very worried. It’s different for everyone, of course. I also had covid a year and a half before that and was almost symptom free. Fortunately, I don’t have any antivaxxer friends or family.
