Mark Zuckerberg Receives (Mostly) Praise for Choosing to Vaccinate Baby Daughter Max

01/08/2016 at 08:09 PM ET

Mark Zuckerberg wants you to know that he’s a parent who believes in vaccinating his child.

The Facebook CEO marked yet another milestone in 6-week-old daughter Maxima‘s life on his social media platform Friday.

“Doctor’s visit — time for vaccines!” Zuckerberg, 31, captioned the adorable photo.

The proud dad received many positive comments from his followers including parents and doctors with one fan praising, “vaccines save lives and not necessarily just your child’s.”

Another wrote: “As someone with autism, with a son with autism, as someone who is constantly watching good people put their own children at serious risk because of old, fraudulent fears of vaccines and autism. Thank you for doing what’s right and also for showing everyone else that it’s the right thing to do as well.”

However there are some followers who voiced their opinions against vaccinations. “Why would you subject your wee little one to vaccines?!?” one fan commented.

Following the measles outbreak at Disneyland in December 2014, there has been a national debate on the pros and cons of vaccinating children.

The state of California, where Zuckerberg resides, now requires almost all California schoolchildren to be fully vaccinated in order to attend private or public school.

Zuckerberg and wife Dr. Priscilla Chan welcomed their first child in November, and he has since been very hands-on with daddy duties during his two-month paternity leave.

Vaccines don’t cause autism. Give it up people! All these illnesses that vaccines protect against which come back like the plague because of stupid parents choosing not to vaccinate.

His wife is a pediatrician. I think they know what they are doing.

J.H. on

Wow, is she cute!

Christine on

Good for him! Let’s see if he can undo some of the damage that dimwit Jenny McCarthy did.

nvs on

Good on them for getting baby vaccinated! I have a child in my First Grade class who cannot be vaccinated as he has cancer. If an unvaccinated child were to bring something into the school, it could be potentially fatal for this little one.

jones on

She is adorable and as someone else pointed out, her mom is a pediatrician so it is not surprising that they are making this choice.

Mary on

Max is absolutely adorable!

Do every things that you feel is right for your own child !!

The people who are against vaccinations obviously do not have a clue about the devastation caused by disease.

Mrs. B on

She’s a very cute baby. I love her fat cheeks.

Anti-vac logic. That bridge is only 99.7% safe, so I think I’ll won’t use it and cross the river on my own.
And to guest, if you would bother reading you would know that the doctor, Andrew Wakefield, that published the fraudulent research regarding vaccines and autism has not only been discredited but he is barred from practicing medicine.

Guest on

Good for them! I would not want my child going to school or socializing with an un-vaccinated child. It is ridiculous to take risks like that with your baby! This mother is a pediatrician and you know she is doing what’s best for her little girl. SO many ill-informed parents out there!

I don’t believe it unless I saw the actual injection going on in and verifying that it is what they say it is..This rich man is a shill for the elite..not buying People..disgusting journalism..this is only some of the stuff in vaccines off the

Additional Facts

Additives used in the production of vaccines may include

suspending fluid (e.g. sterile water, saline, or fluids containing protein);
preservatives and stabilizers to help the vaccine remain unchanged (e.g. albumin, phenols, and glycine); and
adjuvants or enhancers to help the vaccine to be more effective.

Common substances found in vaccines include:

Aluminum gels or salts of aluminum which are added as adjuvants to help the vaccine stimulate a better response. Adjuvants help promote an earlier, more potent response, and more persistent immune response to the vaccine.
Antibiotics which are added to some vaccines to prevent the growth of germs (bacteria) during production and storage of the vaccine. No vaccine produced in the United States contains penicillin.
Egg protein is found in influenza and yellow fever vaccines, which are prepared using chicken eggs. Ordinarily, persons who are able to eat eggs or egg products safely can receive these vaccines.
Formaldehyde is used to inactivate bacterial products for toxoid vaccines, (these are vaccines that use an inactive bacterial toxin to produce immunity.) It is also used to kill unwanted viruses and bacteria that might contaminate the vaccine during production. Most formaldehyde is removed from the vaccine before it is packaged.
Monosodium glutamate (MSG) and 2-phenoxy-ethanol which are used as stabilizers in a few vaccines to help the vaccine remain unchanged when the vaccine is exposed to heat, light, acidity, or humidity.
Thimerosal is a mercury-containing preservative that is added to vials of vaccine that contain more than one dose to prevent contamination and growth of potentially harmful bacteria.

You say this, but I bet you’d have zero problems injecting said infant with chemotherapy drugs if she were to have cancer. Or life saving treatments for any one of the horrible illnesses that would otherwise be prevented by use of vaccinations.

Mia on

There is no proof that the vaccines cause Autism, but there is not proof that is doesn’t either. That being said she is the sweetest little thing, look at that face!

This has nothing to do with the topic but their baby is totally adorable!

I love how strangers weigh in on their decisions. NOT YOUR BABY!!!

Children first on

Is there only a two party line on this or can one try to improve the current situation and express their fear of the ingredients and the effects on their little loved one… As well as distrust in the corporate medi complex that is fueled by profit hungry?
Why not reach higher. Why not open the discussion instead of close it off with this two party bull. I mean we aren’t all afraid of autism… We’d like safer standards and less pressure to just blindly follow the money train wherever it goes?! I love my children and want the best. I would like dialogue not two party crap. To me that’s uneducated way.

Children first on

Nor everyone is two party. Some want the best for kids. If you just do the two party bull then it will never get better. I want more improved … Better options… Dialogue….
If you make this vac vs. anti vac … Nothing will get better.
You’ll just take what they give and not question the ingredients safety and the profit driven motives. Open the dialogue . Our children deserve better.

jfs on

Chubby cheeks are the cutest!

Michelle Bradley on

I, for one am glad there are people out there who refuse to vaccinate their children. The world is much too over populated as is.

goodie on

There is no cons with vaccinations.

Donna on

My dad suffers from Polio that he contracted 5 months before the vaccine was made available in the ’50’s. I have seen him overcome the odds and become a success, but it was not without some serious challenges. Hearing his stories of survival, I would not wish what he went through on my worst enemy. He was the lucky one. He lived but is paralyzed in both arms and suffers from respiratory issues that give him intense pain every day. While he perseveres, I could not imagine my kids every going through the horror he went through. Too much to write here, but awful beyond words. Please – Vaccinate your kids.

Joansie on

Odds for a healthy child are way better with recommended vaccines than without.
Mostly posted because this baby is soooo cute. I want a granddaughter so bad! Only have grandsons.

Children first on

No cons?
Gee. I guess they are perfect ?
History will help you.
Learn about vac failures.
Learn about ingredient changes due to issues..
There’s a lot of improvements to be made before I blindly follow you down a dark unknown….

Dawn on

NOT vaccinating your child(ren) is a form of child abuse and a complete disregard for fellow human beings. And all these ‘exemptions’ allowed (unless truly medical) are ridiculous. God does not want you to spread disease. But yet, I live in a US community where 10% of children are not vaccinated due to religious exemption.

Chris M on

Put a cork in it Dawn. I am NEVER injecting any of my kids with the garbage that you call ‘vaccines’. Go deal with that.

Chris M is Stupid! on

Chris, you’re an idiot. I hope your kids don’t die from not being vaccinated you dumb azz. And if they do, it’ll be your fault. You are nothing but an abusive parent.

Christine on

All these anti vac people make me laugh.
EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM were vaccinated as children. What exactly have they suffered all their lives as a result of NEVER getting polio, measles, mumps, rubella etc.?
This country is so full of morons it’s scary. But hey, dont vaccinate. Just makes it easier for mother nature to weed out the weak.
A quack doctor writes a paper that has been confirmed to be a lie with no verifiable blind studies, facts or medical tests were ever conducted, he was then stripped of his medical license and these lunatics in this country STILL believe him. LOL – then why dont they seek him out and have him care for their newborns? A doctor without license shouldnt bother them considering his “research” apparently still holds true for them. Or better yet, bring your unvaccinated kids to Africa…throw caution to the wind and see what happens without inoculations…should be fine and if not…oh well…at least you didnt inject them with “poison”.

Betty on

They’re doing the right thing because Mark’s wife is a pediatrician so she knows what is the best for her daughter.

Callie on

Any parent that does NOT vaccinate their children should be jailed for exposing others to highly infectious diseases; they are highly selfish individuals! I actually ask my children’s friend’s parents if their children have been vaccinated and if they have not, they are not allowed in our house or to play with my kids!

KL on

WHY is this even a story?? It should be as much a given as his child entering Kindergarden.
You Americans and your hang-ups on vaccinations – you’re a pack of under-educated drama queens!

Chris M on

Listen up concern trolls. Because kids arent vaccinated doesnt mean they are carrying diseases all the time. Give me a frickin break. Society survived thousands and thousands of millennia before multi billion dollar pharma companies started an industry around injecting chemical garbage into our kids. And if your kids are vaccinated, what the heck are you worried about? Its.the opposite for me, I want to keep your vaccinated kids FAR away from mine because god knows what they injected your kids with.

kangarupam on

Vaccines have not been independently proven to wipe out disease. Sanitation preceded vaccines and has been shown by private studies to be the real reason diseases have disappeared. The Greater Good is a well researched documentary on this exact subject. Not all of those who are for vaccine safety are against vaccines. And not all of us are uneducated. Many of us, like myself, have done extensive, independent, clinical research and encourage others to do the same where possible.

LoveYourDNA on

Until science is perfected in the area of vaccination it is better to have than have not. I lived in Jakarta for 3 years and had to be vaccinated against a host of diseases. I’m so glad I was because I can’t imagine what it would have been like to contract Cholera, Typhus, Typhoid, Malaria or Hepatitis, etc. To each their own, but I would never want to put my child at risk of any preventable disease when possible. Some people are far too paranoid and believe conspiracy theories.

Holly on

Educated people vaccinate.

Karen on

That is one GORGEOUS baby girl! And none of my business what he does with his daughter’s so no comment other than she’s beautiful!

Leslie on

I am a mom of five children. As a healthcare provider, I have believed that it’s better to vaccinate children against childhood diseases. I’ve seen cases where children were not vaccinated, and they became very ill. A few of them died, due to being exposed to measles.

Others will disagree and say that vaccines harm children, and they cause a multitude of problems. Honestly those cases are few and far between. I would rather be safe then sorry later on. I believe that Mr. Zuckerberg is doing the right thing for his very precious daughter. His wife is an MD, and she should be commended instead of insulted. They are doing right thing in my opinion.

gracie on

@ Chris….have you ever taken a history course? You state “Society survived thousands and thousands of millennia before multi billion dollar pharma companies started an industry around injecting chemical garbage into our kids.”You do know that the mortality rate for infants and young children was extremely high for those thousands of millennia. All you have to do is walk through any American colonial burying ground to see the hundreds of headstones with the names and birth/death rdtes of children. The life expectency for adults prior to the development of vaccines was maybe early to mid forties at the very best. You are a typical know nothing 30 something “parent” who feels putting your own child and all those around him/her at risk because you think you are smarter than everyone else. Again, educate yourself in world history…death from all kinds of diseases…that are now preventable… was the norm for children.

NicsMom on

I am a docotr (neurologist) and mother to a 2-year old. Last month, we had a case of a child (born almost the same day as my son) with meningitis and severe brain damage, from which he is never going to recover. Nightmare.
I have to say, at same point all I could think of was, thank God my child is vaccinated. I wish people that speak so lightly against vaccines would see what they are exposing their children to. Not some theoretical danger or a conspiracy theory that is not proven, but real devastating disease.
I would do anything to protect my child and this includes the best medicine has to offer.

Katie on

Sam, Do not think you are demonstrating intelligence to accuse this parent of lying about vaccinating his child, nor quoting the idiocy of a discredited former doctor who apparently thought it would be interesting to get everyone’s attention by making up whatever he wanted to about vaccines, then accusing other medical people of desiring harm to children so they could make money. Shame on him and shame on you. There hae been years of research, and none of this has been proven to be true. The only thing that’s really happened among anti-vacs is that they want to believe with all their hearts that there’s a conspiracy that doesn’t exist. I nearly died when I had the measles, and I have seen children who have had measles encephalitis and will never feed themselves, never speak, never walk, never do anything again, and those who died. I am not willing to take that chance with my children, and I feel so sad about your children who you are willing to take the chance of such harm. The enmity that exists on either side is not needed; we need to be able to dialogue and help people realize the vaccines are safe. If you are worried, think about having the vaccinations spread further apart, or given one at a time…. You’ve been terrorized too long, and the fight has gone on long enough. Doesn’t everyone care about the children?

PCC on

In years past, this would have just been common sense. Oh, well. Cute little girl and good for him being such a hands on dad.

Shal on

With the influx of old diseases and new, a parent would be foolish not to vaccine. Just because celebs who have autistic children are against vaccination, doesn’t mean the statistics will prove your little one will get autism. I’ve raised 4 children and now 5 grandchildren, all to whom were vaccinated, none have autism.

Rump Titty Rump Titty. Surely I’m not the only one who sees that written on his doctors office wall?

Ok. Seriously. Enough about Zuckerbergs newfound paterrnal side. And sadly, his daughter isn’t the first child to receive a vaccination. It’s fine to move on now.

In this day and time it’s damned if you do and damned if you don’t. Good thing he is doing what’s best for his child and not listening to critics. Cute baby and the outfit is tooooo cute!

Sally on

Like Donna, my family member (my uncle) was diagnosed with polio the year before the vaccine and spent one year in an iron lung. However, he passed away a few years ago from a reaccurrance.

Lydia on

Children first…you are mistaken if you think everyone who vaccinates does so without doing any research. Every autistic child I know demonstrated a slight difference from early on…a subtle difference that got shrugged off, ignored. That slight difference no one could quite put their finger on….

Mama to be 😍 on

I believe it is a parents right to make this choice. I don’t judge them either way, because I feel like it is a personal choice. I can tell you I signed a waiver NOTA TO GIVE my son the Hep B. Vaccine when he was born. I had wanted to do so when he was a little older. However, the nurses in the hospital did so anyway. I KNEW SOMETNING was off and different with him. He went from a great newborn in the hospital (in the hospital for 4 days because he was a c-section) to getting jaundice, a high fever, and screaming morning noon and nigh. I then found out they gave him the shot.

After the hospital, I continued to vaccinate my son. However, I wouldn’t allow more then one-two shots due to the fact that the five-six they like to give children and newborns are a tad much in my opinion. Every shot caused him to react in a different way that was indescribable…. And I’m not talking just the standard little low grade temp. The trihib greatly effected him as well. Needless to say he has ODD, ADHD, and autism.

I have been to support groups where parents say they had a child was was thriving and walking and talking to getting the MMR, and watching their child regress to crawling and loss of language, on top of behav. Issues. I know that statement causes MUCH DEBATE, and again, I respect any parents decision. However, he is the best advice I can give ANY PARENT/GUARDIAN who is going to vaccinate their child.

1) Dont allow more then one-two shots at a time. Being slightly behind schedule isn’t a big issue. If your a parent who is going to vaccinate their child, better late then never…. And injecting a ton of vaccines into your child at once can def. Cause a possible reaction, even a irreversible reaction. Again, I have seen first hand reactions my child has had, and remember that every child reacts different and just because your child might not have reacted, doesn’t mean it isn’t possible for another Childs. These are sensitive babies with NO immune system so anything is possible.
2) I ALWAYSSSSS make the doctor show me the shot IN the package, and read the ingridients myself. I want to make sure there is NO thimerosal in it, which is Mercury based and used to preserve the shelf life. This is the controversial ingredient that many parents believe have caused their children’s autism/delays, etc. If you are then OK to use the vaccine, make sure that package that you read that is SEALED is the one used and stays in the room with you at all times till the shot is given. I can tell you that if I wouldn’t have pushed for that, my sons flu shot would have had thimerosal in it. Because when they left the room with the package, I saw the nurse grab another vaccine vial. That vial was the one with the thimerosal. And I told her to use the one in the package and to open it up and fill the needle infront of me. Again, she came into the room with a filled shot, and disregarded what I said. I did it till she got it right and the third time was the charm, where she opened it up infront of me and filled the needle infront of me after I saw it and read it. Better to be safe then sorry.
3) MOST IMPORTANT in my opinion. If your doctor has a problem with questions and concerns, and more questions….. Not the right doctor for you. You should be able to ask as many questions as you want. This is your baby after all. And if the practice has a problem with opening the vaccines infront of you, and allowing you to read the ingredients, and preparing the vaccine infront of you, again, maybe not the best for doctor for you and your child. You have a right with your baby.

Again, I don’t judge any parent here. I’m just offering some personal advice from a personal experience, in addition to many parents who I know who have experienced many different outcomes from this. I wish Everyone the best. Have a happy and healthy 2016! 😃😊😄

vaxbaby on

my son is autistic, and to @Lydia, he had some thing missing from day one. I noticed it and ignored it. I don’t believe it was from being vaccinated. not at just a few weeks old he probably wasn’t yet. my father had polio in the 1920s, and you could still see how much smaller his left leg muscles were than the right it never recovered.

Zada on

“Sam” is an idiot and must be related to Jenny McCarthy. Vaccines do not cause autism. Andrew Wakefield, the “doctor” that published the fraudulent research regarding vaccines and autism has been discredited and proven to be a liar. Do you people screaming about vaccines not have a brain in your head, to find out the FACTS? I bet YOU were vaccinated, though, so you don’t have to worry about getting a horrible disease. God, people amaze me, they’re such sheep.

It is better to prevent the disease then to treat it!

I’m so over people constantly bringing up the ever-scary Formaldehyde (!!!) that’s in vaccines.

You clearly have done no research, since Formaldehyde is naturally occurring- your body produces it!!


Just because says this man vaccinated his child, does not mean he actually did. They lie, manipulate, and mislead the masses for their own agenda. Vaccines 100% cause autism and who knows what else, why did autism not exist 20 years ago when children under the age of 6 months did not receive 30+ shots, and now autism is everywhere. Don’t trust these people.

lp0320 on

I vaccinated my son, and so have millions of other parents. Gee Mark, we are so proud of you for posting on your social media site so that all of the world can pat you on the back and say good for you.

I was never vaccinated. Had the measles as a child and I have nerve damage in my ears. Bilateral hearing loss. Deaf in my right ear 70% loss in my left ear. Do not qualify for cochlear implant. It’s a big chance to take. I had my child vaccinated each time she needed it. Not making my mothers mistake.

What a adorable baby! I think everyone has the right to vaccinate or not..2 weeks ago my 12 yr old son found out he has type 1 diabetes which means he can not survive without insulin (6 shots a day) one in my family has it so after doing some research there is a link between vaccines and type 1 …if I knew this information before I would not given my son vaccines!

@WAKE UP PEOPLE…Autiusm has existed as long a mankind has existed. It did just start to appear 30 years ago. What started 30 years ago was an uptick in research the wide umbrella of symptoms that make up the Autism spectrum. Children exhibiting symptoms many , many years ago were simlpy considered mentally ill and were often locked away or kept under wraps by familes that had the means to do so. In poor families, these children were considered “fools” and were treated as such. You might want to actully educate yourself as your ranting make you seem like an intellectual moron.

Angela on

For all those people out there who don’t believe in vaccinations: I would love to introduce you to my mother who was not vaccinated as a child. She is still suffering from the effects of polio, a disease that is preventable. I think too many people seem to forget what these diseases can do a person, not only as a child, but in later life! Needless to saw, she had us vaccinated!

Way to go for protecting your child. To all vaccines do not cause autism, if it did we would all have autism.

Kay on

If you have fears…. ask for “clean” vaccines and don’t do so many at one visit. Do a few (or one) at a time…. the only reason Dr.’s give so many at one visit is because they are afraid that parents are not going to come back on a schedule and miss some of the vaccinations. If you are a responsible parent you will keep the schedule! That’s what I did with my son and he never had any bad reaction… not even a fever!

Tegan on

With someone with the amount of influence that Mark does, I think that it is amazing that he is showcasing it. In Canada, without documentation that a child is allergic, they are not allowed within most school boards. In my profession, I even had to bring documentation in that I was fully vaccinated.

For those believing that they cause Autism (do you all even know what Autism is?). As someone with an autistic brother, I can tell you all, with 100 % certainty that no, they don’t cause this condition.

Lydia on

I hae a grandchild who has a form of autism, and I have friends with children who are autistic or grandchildren who are. All of them showed a subtle difference at birth. I wondered about what might be going on with my grandchild because I could spot that subtle difference from day 3 and there had been no vaccinations at all. I used to work in NB nursery, and if you have been around that many babies, you know what is “normal” and what isn’t…. There was not a significant something you could put your finger on until a bit later, but never a reaction to a vaccine, and there were precautions because the parents are very watchful about everything connected to their children. I have a dog in this fight, so to speak, and I just don’t think it’s vaccines. Too many of you are afraid of things you don’t know very much about. I played with mercury on the sidewalk for hours at a time, shining quarters with it, and carrying them in my pocket. I lived on food that was sprayed with DDT, and so did all my friends. None of us had children with autism or any other issue that could be laid at the feet of mercury, formaldehyde (which we pickled dead animals in back in the day when parents weren’t terrified to let their children learn from nature, and when they taught us to live but use caution…wash our hands thoroughly, wear gloves, use goggles, and wear a mask when using something that had fumes. We all did things that were risky, as had our parents, and we were exposed to things you would consider too dangerous, but we were okay, and so were our children. The one child I knew who suffered from mental retardation was a much loved daughter of friends who were crazy about her, but it was before measles vaccine, and because of measles encephalitis, she has required care for the rest of her life, never able to have all they had hoped for when she was born, and left to be a 5 year old the rest of her long life.

No Big Deal on

I think that people should do what they believe is best for their children. If parents want to vaccinate their children, it’s really not that big of a deal. No matter what the parents decide, at the end of the day, it their child(ren) and they have the right intentions for their child(ren), and want what’s best for them, just like any other parent. So to them, vaccinating is what they think is best. To each is own

Yeah, nothing like injecting chemicals into your newborn. Obviously, lots of money doesn’t always make one smart.

Oh this comment made me laugh. Mark Zuckerberg has a lot of money because he IS smart. Not the other way around. Same with his wife. A paediatrician.
You know who you could use this quite against? Jenny McCarthy.

Mommy of 2 on

Just one more reason I won’t vaccinate. Zuckerberg is arrogant. I sincerely hope his child has no adverse reactions, and if she does that she sues her parents when she is old enough. Pediatricians don’t even know what they are injecting – ask any of them and they can’t tell you. Blind faith has no place in science.

Shawna on

Tegan – That is absolutely not true. I have 3 children (grade 4, grade 8, grade 9) and they are not vaccinated. All you have to do is get an exemption and it does not have to be due to an allergy. Most places in Canada have a philosophical exemption, which I am more than happy to take advantage of. I am so tired of people saying that kids HAVE to be vaccinated to be in school. My kids have been in 3 different schools, never a problem.

The media seems to have a superpower that the rest of the world doesn’t have. Do you see anything beyond MZ sitting, with his child fully dressed in a space with a desk with a wooden bulletin board behind him? MZ and his wife, a pediatrician who is in the business of promoting vaccines, both are part of the Task Force for Global Health via their charity which includes the WHO, Gates Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, UNICEF, SAVE THE CHILDREN, CDC, and others, who go around the globe vaccinating children in third world countries, do you honestly think they can live their pregnancy in the public eye and the birth and than NOT make a statement saying their child has been vaccinated? Please! They may be financially powerful but they are no match when it comes to the pharmaceutical industry and the groups behind the TFGH. So he can post all the pictures he wants and he can say what he wants but it’s meaningless.

There are a couple of odd things about this: Rich white folks, especially in California as recent survey’s have indicated are the least likely to have their children vaccinated so why is MZ any different? Well for one he’s clearly now the propaganda machine which big pharma has always dreamed of because he’s owns the most powerful social media outlet—FACEBOOK. Are you aware because of MZ’s association with the Gates Foundation and other charities that push vaccines, now censors FACEBOOK accounts and sites that are dedicated to the reveal the dangers of mandatory vaccination? Google also censor sites that reveal the controversy behind vaccines.

-If you look on the CDC’s childhood vaccination schedule, there is NO one month vaccine protocol. HepB given at birth and the next scheduled shot is at 2 months. You say, well they are just doing this early. Supposeably the CDC states 2 months is the appropriate time because of the child’s immune system development. https://www.facebook(dot)com/photo.php?fbid=10207286916184103&set=p.10207286916184103&type=3&theater. Are MZ & wife going against the grain?

The Dr’s office has a wooden desk, a white board behind him that says titty and rump on it? What Dr would write that for patients to see and when have you seen a white board in a Dr office? When you go into the room you get the child undressed for its weigh in, they are sitting and baby is still bundled up. The injection room is usually very colorful with images to distract the children from the procedure, comfortable chairs for the parents to sit and console their child after the injection. A man with the wealth of MZ certainly would not take his child to a clinic that looks like a Medicaid doctors office.

Unless you an unbiased individual was present who reviewed an analysis of the vaccine vial contents, saw the solution drawn into the syringe and injected into the child with a supporting video…no one can say for certain if the child was vaccinated or not.

Would MZ lie? Considering the associations he is now invoked with-yes. Bottom line: Why would someone, MZ or anyone else want to publicize what used to be a private family invasive health procedure to the public? Why did he feel compelled to publicly promote this unless he was being used as propaganda for the causes he now is engage in? If he wants to serve the public, he can use his influence and money to compel the government and the pharmetutical industry to do the study that the US congress ordered them to do over a decade ago-that is a study comparing the health status of unvaccinated children to vaccinate children. Yes, there are enough unvaccinated children in the US to do such a study. How do I know this-the CDC is on record complaining there are over a million plus unvaccinated children in the US. A study would require only 700,000.

She is STUNNING. Such a pretty baby.

And if you don’t believe in vaccinations…..please go climb back under the rock from whence you came

Good for Mark! I don’t like Zuckerberg that much, but here he is doing the right thing for his child, and for society as a whole. The anti-vaxxer propaganda is what is dangerous, not the vaccines.

This photo is a charade “rump titty” (look at the white brd in background). Shame on Zuckerberg for making light of vaccinating and the draconian vaccine laws sweeping the country.

All done for publicity. I wonder how much he was paid to post this picture of his daughter getting vaccines at 1 month and 8 days since there are no vaccine recommendations at this age according to the CDC.

He looks like he is having the time of his life with his daughter. He is not going to want to go back to work. Everyone has a right to an opinion but to not vaccinate your child is selfish, you are putting your own child and those of others in danger. If you choose not to vaccinate, then you need to keep your kids at home 24/7 and wrap them in bubble wrap.

They’re doing the right thing to vaccinate their kid since Mark’s wife is a pediatrician and she knows what is the right thing to do for her child.

Vaccines are population control and is the leading cause of autism
