Ask Amy: Vaccination Status Makes Hesitant Guests Off

Dear Amy: Recently a couple with whom my husband and I were casual friends a few years ago moved to our town.

We helped them with a few things related to their move, such as storing some of their items and finding different service people.

They have now settled in their new house and have asked us to come over for dinner. However, based on a few things he said (and didn’t say), we believe he hasn’t received the COVID vaccines.

We are fully vaccinated but are cautious and uncomfortable at the thought of being close during indoor feedings with unvaccinated people.

We hesitate to ask them about their vaccination status, as it seems intrusive. On the other hand, we feel strongly that those who avoid vaccines for whatever reason need to respect others by maintaining social distancing and wearing masks, both possible if we accept their dinner invitations. Won’t happen.

We have indicated broadly about vaccination, such as mentioning our joy at being able to visit vaccinated relatives, but they did not say anything about their situation.

So, what is the polite or proper way to handle this?

– not nosy, but curious

Dear Curious: If you are nervous or unsure about the vaccination status of others – you can (also) choose to wear a mask and maintain social distance. It looks like some states are moving toward recommending it — even for vaccinated people — as types of the virus continue to emerge.

However, understand that your vaccination is supposed to protect you from more severe symptoms caused by the coronavirus and that some vaccinations appear to be effective – so far – against the variants (check with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at cdc.gov) )

If you want to know if people have been vaccinated – ask them. I believe this is a fairly common issue that will come up frequently.
