“Vaccines cause adults” (pro-vaccination slogan)

"Vaccines cause adults” is a pro-vaccination slogan that has been printed on many images. The slogan is a response to the anti-vaccination slogan of “Vaccines cause autism.”

“Vaccines cause adults” was put on a sign at the March for Science on April 22, 2017, and posted that day on Twitter. A T-shirt was shown on Twitter on July 17, 2017.

CureGear T-shirts popularized the slogan in October 2017. Some anti-vaccination responses to this T-shirt, however, include “Vaccines also cause perfectly healthy babies to die and never become adults” and “This is the dumbest shirt ever.”

(WIS) - A Colorado startup is creating clothing and jewelry to bring awareness about diseases - but a new item about vaccines is creating a stir.

CureGear is pegged as “Clothing for a cure!” and creator Jessie Frenkel, 26, calls it “a science-inspired clothing brand.” Their Facebook page describes their brand as “dedicated to promoting a healthy lifestyle while supporting medical research” with a portion of the sales going to research.

But an item posted on Oct. 17 has upset many in the anti-vaccination community. A baseball-style T-shirt that reads: “Vaccines cause adults” is featured on the post that says “Help educate others and advocate for vaccinations with your ‘Vaccines cause adults’ baseball Tee!”

The post riled up many anti-vaxxers, who filled the comments with links and content to combat the vaccination advocacy.

When Jessie Frenkel’s start-up debuted a new t-shirt line featuring the slogan “Vaccines cause adults,” she didn’t expect controversy.

Then vaccination critics discovered the shirts.

“What a disgusting mockery of people who have been injured by vaccines. You will NEVER see my business!” posted one person on CureGear’s Facebook page. A post promoting the pro-vaccination shirts gathered 7,500 comments, including “Vaccines also cause perfectly healthy babies to die and never become adults” and “This is the dumbest shirt ever.”
