Awwww, that face!!! As one might expect, Zuckerberg's post has literally gotten millions of likes, with most commenters praising Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla for being responsible and safe. As one might also expect, there was also a fair amount of criticism from anti-vaxxers, slamming the new parents for injecting their infant with "neurological-toxins."

Haters aside, it's so important that Zuckerberg used his incredibly far-reaching platform to argue in favor of vaccinations. As a mother of three who once agonized over whether or not it was safe to vaccinate my first baby, I completely sympathize with parents who worry about the potential side effects of vaccines -- but there's no denying that they save countless lives every day (and that the diseases these vaccines prevent still kill infants and children). So, as Zuckerberg is someone with so much influence, it's practically his responsibility to advocate for public heath, and it seems that's exactly what he's trying to do.

Hope Max didn't cry too much!
