Woman asks if she's wrong for refusing to get flu shot after friend bans her from visiting kids.

There are generally two kinds of people who don't get vaccinated. There are the staunch anti-vaxxers who are like, "Big pharma is poisoning our children!" and then there are those who are, how do we put this, flu-shot ignorant? The types who are like, "Well, I've never had the flu, so therefore I don't need a flu shot." Someone in the latter camp took to Reddit's "Am I the Asshole" because she couldn't understand why she'd been banned from visiting her friend's newborn child unless she got a flu shot.

But then, in a miraculous turn of events, Reddit's shame-based tactics convinced the flu shot-averse woman to — wait for it — get a damn flu shot!

The story goes that a woman offered to help her friend with her newborn child and the friend was like, "you can come see my child, but only if you get a flu shot."

My good friend has a toddler, along with newborn twins. Her husband just went back to work from paternity leave, so she reached out to our friend group asking for help. I don’t have nor want children of my own, so I can only imagine how hard it must be trying to entertain a toddler, feed one baby, burp the other, etc. I offered to come help with cleaning, laundry, cooking and the babies over the next few weeks so I can give her some relief.

She texted me today and told me that her husband is insisting that anyone who sees the kids has to have had their flu shot.
