It’s an essential part of your big day! What better way to ensure guests’ health than to make them all get vaccinated? But, you’re likely to be met with suspicion and resistance when you try to introduce the subject. You should know that there’s no need to sound rude when you ask your guests to be vaccinated and that you don’t need to be overly pushy. Let’s take a look at some suggestions to ensure you’re not going to offend anyone.
Do You Really Need to Have Your Guests Vaccinated?
I’m sure you’ve heard that all of your guests should be vaccinated before coming to your wedding, but you might be wondering whether this is the correct thing to do. Should you ask people to fill out a form, or do you just go with the flow and leave it to them? You need to figure out what you want and what you need to do to make sure that your wedding would be safe for everyone.
When it comes to vaccinations, there’s a lot of misinformation. Many people believe vaccinations are risky or having no benefits, even when the facts are fact. Though vaccinations have helped to dramatically reduce the spread of numerous illnesses and diseases like polio and measles, there are still some who claim they’re bad for you. Vaccines are proven to work wonders — not only do they reduce the risk of catching an illness, but they also reduce the chances of spreading it to other people.
If Some Refuse, What Would You Do?
Do you have a guest who flat-out refuses to be vaccinated? Or do you have a friend or family member who wouldn’t mind getting a shot or two but would like it to be done in private without everyone knowing? In either case, you can quickly get them to comply by suggesting they get a flu shot. Most people don’t think twice about getting a shot, but it can be a very sensitive subject for some. You must discuss this with your guest, especially if they are a big part of the ceremony. Explain the importance of it for you and the other people attending the said event.
Having a guest vaccination program at your wedding is a great way to relieve the stress of avoiding illness and even death on your big day. But there is a risk that your guests won’t follow your request to be vaccinated, even if you’ve made it clear that they will be made to feel welcome. And if they don’t, you may end up inviting a lot of sick people to your wedding. That’s not something you want at your wedding. So, what’s the best way to ensure your guests are vaccinated? You can ask them to provide a proof of vaccination for everybody’s peace of mind. This will allow all of your guests and you to have total peace of mind to have fun.
