Are people born with tourrete syndrome?

Yes, people are born with Tourette, though the severity of its manifestation may be influenced by environmental issues. The vast majority of people with Tourette Syndrome have inherited it. When a person has Tourette, they have a 50 percent chance of passing it on through their genes. It is often difficult to tell whether someone has Tourette, because the disease manifests itself differently in each person - so some traits may never be noticed as they lie close enough to normality, or be without symptoms entirely.

What is the vector of Tourettes?

Since by vector I assume you mean organism/mechanism like air or water that carries it, Tourette's Syndrome has no vectors. Tourette's Syndrome is an autosomal (chromosomal) dominant genetic disorder that is passed down through the hereditary line, much like other dominant characteristics, for example brown eyes. You are either born with latent (dormant) Tourette's, or you don't have it. Tourette's is almost exclusively dormant at birth, and does not show symptoms until 4-6 years later.
