My SIL is due soon with her first baby, and she told my in-laws that nobody (including them) would be allowed to visit the baby unless they are up-to-date on their Tdap, because she's worried about whooping cough. I understand first time mom worries, but it seems a little much to me to tell people nobody can visit without this vaccine first.

On a side note, I have two kids, and while I suggested my in-laws get the vaccine when they were born, I didn't force them or anyone else to do it. My in-laws declined, because they didn't think it was necessary, however with my SIL they are willing to do it. Not sure how I feel about her making these demands and everyone being willing to meet them without question.

Is this a normal request for people to make? She hasn't asked us about visiting, so I'm not sure if we're even invited, but I feel like she might have more demands concerning my kids and them being around school germs.
