Doctor’s visit — time for vaccines!

Posted by Mark Zuckerberg on Friday, 8 January 2016

“Thanks for protecting your child, and other children who can’t be vaccinated, and for supporting science!” wrote user Allison Hagood. “Adorable baby.”

(A major element of vaccine advocacy is “herd immunity,” which protects an entire community, including those who are not immune, when a critical portion of the population has been immunized.)

Stuart said:  “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. Thank you for doing what’s right and also for showing everyone else that it’s the right thing to do as well.”

Maria said: “Mark cares about his baby and knows vaccinations are for the good of his baby and they are very important.
Mark decides to vaccine his baby.
Mark is intelligent.
Be like Mark.”

While other fans were not so impressed, Elza  countered: “Vaccine is poison for human kind. It kills more people than it helps. I wish people don’t take it as an example here.”

Sheila Said: “I do not believe this at all. Just plain old publicity for vaccines. Who is he kidding. Not me for sure. Who is paying him to do this? I’ll bet that baby will get no vaccines, who is with me.”

Ian said: “Pharmaceutical companies make HUGE profits off of a sick society .
These same companies make vaccines to keep you healthy! Lol.
Use your head people.. Every goddamn childhood illness has become an epidemic , we have the sickest children to date ..while everyone pushes for more and more vaccines..
Do you honestly think that a beautiful healthy newborn baby needs injections of neurological-toxins to become safe for the public..

Steve wrote: “Poor baby. Injecting poison directly into the babies blood stream. Forget those natural immunities we got the good stuff right here in this syringe. This will make you healthy. Lol”

  • I don’t understand people who won’t protect their baby.


  • Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.


  • Its a very controversial topic!


  • His post got so many comments. Unbelievable. Vaccination is surely a very important topic. I’m glad he vaccinated his child and he posted the picture. :-)


  • I am glad that all my children were vaccinated – I saw what happened to friends of mine’s children who weren’t. Good on Mark for showing things the way they are in his family.


  • I don’t know what the fuss is about, I don’t see the baby injected with any vaccines.
    All I see is Mark holding a beautiful baby on his lap. Congrats!


  • Nothing controversial about getting a vaccine in my mind!


  • I’m glad to see him post this. Vaccinations are there for a reason. I couldn’t live with the guilt if my child got terribly ill from something I could have protected them from

    • yeah i don’t think that this is bad at all.


  • Well done to Mark for voicing his support.


  • yeah ultimately is up to the parent but i am for it.


  • I am a parent who will vaccinate my child/ren…
    I have asked that my baby does not receive the Hepatitis Vaccine at birth but it can be given (maybe still to be decided at the 6 week vaccinations) no one that is going to be close my baby in that time has hep B. I think it is a personal choice to vaccinate or to not vaccinate…
    Each side of the debate has arguements to supposedly support their theories. I would rather vaccinate where the risks of complications are very small than to have my child become extremely sick or dye because of a disease that is preventable with vaccine.


  • We all make choices and take risks every single day. Some may say you take a risk when you choose to vaccinate, and others say you are taking a risk if you choose not to vaccinate. I think each parent should decide what’s best for their own child and the wider community, and not put down another parent for having a different view. Mark and Priscilla are entitled to do what they believe is best for their daughter without having to receive negative comments from other parents.


  • Lke ut


  • I think it’s great that her is getting his child vaccinated. I’ve know people who had polio back in the day. To think we can almost eradicate diseases is a great thing as the consequences of some of these disease are lifelong disabilities or death. It’s a scary world where people are being blind sighted to “studies” which are then founded to be not true.
