Mark Zuckerberg has taken his newborn daughter, Max, to the pediatrician to get vaccinated.
He shared the sweet photo on his Facebook page on Friday and Max looks rugged up in a cozy wind and water-resistant onesie.
He captioned the photo: “Doctor’s visit – time for vaccines!”
The 31-year-old Facebook CEO and his wife Priscilla Chan, 30, announced the arrival of their first child together on December 1, 2015.
The U.S government recommends people receive vaccines as children, as child care, schools and colleges maintain lists of the types required from applicants, although exemptions may be granted on religious, philosophical or medical grounds.
Some people are unable to be vaccinated due to a compromised immune system.
Most of the comments of Zuckerberg’s photo praised his actions, although not every reader was happy…
“Why would you subject your wee little one to vaccines?!?” one person wrote. “I know your wife is a pediatrician but did you do your research on vaccines? I’ve seen, firsthand the results of vaccines and it isn’t worth it! Btw, I’m a retired R.N.”
But overall, the photo was met with praise, and some commenters even thanked him.
“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 being sensible,” one person wrote to Zuckerberg on Facebook. “Thank you for doing what’s right and also for showing everyone else that it’s the right thing to do as well.”
“Thanks for being a responsible and informed parent,” another person said. “You are protecting your child and many others by giving her these. It is hard to see your child given a shot, but much harder to see your child sick from a very preventable disease.”
