Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) – A recent outbreak of the measles in New York has some local physicians looking for unique ways to get the message out about vaccines.

UR Medicine and pediatricians recently made a video to get the message out. Now, one pediatric office is taking another approach.

Legacy - Pediatrics - PA - Kate - Shand

Legacy Pediatrics PA Kate Shand said the idea came to her from a meme - the often, generally lighthearted images - and she turned into a T-shirt.

Shand said she posted a picture of her colleagues wearing the shirt on Facebook and it gained some traction. She said it reached 17,000 people in just a few days and received positive messages.

Movement - Voice - Movement - Needs - Shand

“The anti-vaccine movement has such a voice that the pro-vaccine movement needs to,” said Shand.

The message that reads on the t-shirts is simple: Vaccines Cause Adults.

Kind - Play - Vaccines - Cause - Autism

“It’s kind of a play on vaccines cause autism, which they do not. They cause adults,” Shand said. “Healthy kids get vaccinated and grow into adulthood and be healthy adults.”
