We were on the other side, asking our family to be up to date to see our baby. We live in an area with a lot of pertussis, and we had a preemie. All of my family was understanding, and actually thankful for letting them know that they probably needed a booster. Our child was born during flu season, so we were very cautious about visitors and public appearances until the child was older. If, on the other hand, someone in the family didn't want to keep up with their vaccines, we would politely tell them that they could visit with our baby after the baby was old enough for the vaccine. Since it's my baby, and my choice, I would hope that people who care about us would respect that choice.
