Looks like the Zuckerbergs have managed to trigger an online debate. This time because of their baby daughter Max. Mark Zuckerberg posted a photo of himself waiting at a doctor’s clinic with Max on his lap and captioned it “Doctor’s visit, time for vaccines”.

His post has got over 32,000 shares and 31 lakh likes.

But the photo got Zuckerberg into trouble with the anti-vaccination lobby, a group that considers vaccines a conspiracy on the part of pharmaceutical companies to maximise their profits by plugging unnecessary drugs. The lobby also holds vaccination responsible for disorders like autism and Down’s Syndrome in children.


Many Facebook users sympathetic to that view, slammed Zuckerberg.

It’s kinda sad that we now live in a world in which we congratulate people for vaccinating their kids. Look at how far we have regressed due to science illiteracy.

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?

Vaccine is poison for human kind. It kills more people than it helps. I wish people don’t take it as an example here.

Shots are never fun, but so important. Thank you for sharing this - it’s important. (and agree the onesie is super cute!)

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.
