The OP is being asked to vaccinate for no other reason but to be allowed to visit with the infant. Therefore discussing whether cocooning works is totally relevant to the OP's post.

Not really bc she's not going to change their mind! They stated their case and now she must make a decision as to what she's going to do.

The information about cocooning is for the OP not the parents of the infant. The OP asked what others would do if they were given the choice between vaccinating or staying away from the baby.

If cocooning (vaccinating for the benefit of the baby) doesn't really work, then there is no point in subjecting yourself to the risks just to see that baby during the first few months.

I hope so too. But if the family is expecting vaccines to keep the baby safe, I would NOT want to be the one unvaxed person around.
