About the Campaign

“Vaccines Cause Adults” is a public information campaign to promote research-driven, factual information about vaccines. The goal of the campaign is to promote vaccine access and equity as well as advance vaccination as a crucial public health strategy. We do this by summarizing the most up-to-date, data-driven research in clear and accessible formats. 

The Vaccines Cause Adults campaign is a collaboration between Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy Center for Health and Biosciences and The Immunization Partnership. Funding support for this project was generously provided by the Greenwall Foundation Bridging Bioethics Research & Policymaking Grant.

The Immunization Partnership is a nonprofit education organization that collaborates, educates and advocates to ensure access to vaccines and increase immunization.


Researchers and stakeholders across the state discussed the impact of vaccines in Texas — and the lessons learned over the past two years as policymakers look ahead to the 88th Texas legislative session, which started in January 2023. They also considered ways to uncouple vaccines from politics and how to effectively advocate for policies that can improve access to vaccines for those who need them most. 

The symposium included two panels that discussed vaccine costs, equity, misinformation and stakeholder concerns about public health. Following the panels, Dr. Peter J. Hotez, an internationally recognized vaccine scientist at the Baylor College of Medicine and the Baker Institute fellow in disease and poverty, provided a keynote address.
