Textbook answer is: they don't, at least, not to my knowledge.  Now, theoretically, a vampire might steal whatever it is that a vampire doesn't have from a non-vampire, making the non-vampire a vampire and vice-versa, but that's a stupid idea, and no one's going to do that, because no one would want to.    Still though, I have never heard of anyone being turned into a vampire or werecreature, though I have heard of them being awakened by others, but that is a case of them already being one.
Now, I know a fictional vampire first has to get the person to give consent to turn them, and then they bite them and suck their blood, and give them some of their own to drink (see interview with a vampire for a demonstration), then the person goes through the excruciating process of being turned into a vampire.

Really it depends on what vampirisim is technically. . .
I have multiple personalities, one is a were-Sheepenguin, one is a fruit vampire, one likes to imagine cruel and unusal totures, that one's name is Bob the VI.

If you're still interested in exploring the possible origins of individual vampires, you might want to discard the Hollywood and Anne Rice stereotypes for a while and turn instead to other sources of information in order to get a much broader and in-depth understanding of the subject matter. Surviving accounts of the orginal Slavic legends that gave the modern world the very concept of a ''vampire'' to begin with, make it abundantly evident that for a vampire to exist in the first place, the aid of another vampire in facilitating its creation might not even be essential. The old legends offer a myriad number of pre-existing factors that might make one a possible candidate for vampirism, stretching from being born with a caul to having a black cat leap over one's freshly dug grave. You get the idea, I think.

Actually, from the resources on this site (monstropedia), I read that no, you are not born a vampire - vampires are born from sin. It said that suicide was the most efficient way, but basically anyone who did some major sinning in their lifetime rose from their coffin as a vampire after they died. The humans they drank from had the risk of becoming a vampire after they died, too, but it was not one hundred percent certain that they would. And only true vampires (the vamps born from sin) had the ability to change humans.
This is what Monstropedia said... it's the most interesting theory, but before I discovered this site, I'd never even heard of it.

Theres millions of ways to become a vamp in folklore. All depends on the region. Cat jumping your corpse, being buried on unconsecrated ground, dying unjustly, dying from any supernatural cause, being a witch or werewolf in life.... etc etc etc. The main one is suicide victims.

I read that no, you are not born a vampire - vampires are born from sin.

True, although the second sin ever commited was murder, by Caine.  Thus' passing a bloodlust through generations. (If you believe in the biblical theory)

However, if you mean Holywood Vampire here are some ways in which I know:
Drinking from the head vampires blood
Having the blood from a vampire infused with your own
and lastly the classic, being bitten by a vampire

Hope I helped! :)

I know that I am a little late on this one, but I have to agree with Vince. You are born a vampire. And I mean real vampires. :-P
