Mark Zuckerberg Posts Photo of Daughter Getting Vaccines, Internet Goes Wild

Vaccinations are always a hot-button topic, so it's no surprise that when new dad and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg decided to step into the debate, there would be a wide range of passionate responses.

Zuckerberg recently shared a picture of daughter Max at the doctor's office on his Facebook page. She's sitting on her dad's lap, adorably bundled up, and the caption reads, "Doctor's visit — time for vaccines!"

With over 3 million likes and over 31,000 shares, most people are thankful for the illustrious dad to be spreading awareness about the importance of childhood vaccinations.

One such commenter writes, "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."

Then there are those on the other side of the vaccine debate:

And, well ... we're sure you can imagine what the rest of the comments sound like.

Since revealing that he and wife Priscilla Chan were going to become parents, Zuckerberg has shed light on a number of issues important to parents from pregnancy loss to paternity leave and vaccinations are just the latest.

We can't wait to see what he shares next.
