Rotavirus is the leading cause of diarrheal death among children < 5 years old worldwide, estimated to have caused ~ 215,000 deaths in 2013. Prior to rotavirus vaccine implementation, > 65% of children had at least one rotavirus diarrhea illness by 5 years of age and rotavirus accounted for > 40% of all-cause diarrhea hospitalizations globally Rotarix (human monovalent rotavirus vaccine) The vaccination course of Rotarix is 2 doses, at 2 and 4 months of age: Give the 1st dose between 6 and 14 weeks of age — that is, before turning 15 weeks old Rotavirus is the leading cause of severe diarrhoea among children less than five years of age around the world, resulting in more than 200,000 deaths and 2 million hospitalisations worldwide. Vaccinations are an important part of global public health efforts to meet the Sustainable Developmental Goals of UNDP
. ROTAVAC 5D is a unique rotavirus vaccine formulation that can be administered without buffer.

Your baby needs 2 rotavirus vaccinations at least 4 weeks apart to be fully protected. If they miss the 1st dose, they can have it at up to 15 weeks The VE of LLR vaccine was assessed in laboratory-confirmed rotavirus infection among children younger than five years old through a case-control design, using rotavirus-negative cases as controls. LLR vaccination was documented from a vaccination registry
Worldwide, rotavirus continues to take a toll. About 450,000 children under age 5 die each year from rotavirus illness. Efforts are being made to make rotavirus vaccine available throughout the developing world, where deaths from rotavirus illness are more common Rotavirus vaccine is administered by putting drops in the child's mouth.

Although rotavirus infections are unpleasant, you can usually treat this infection at home with extra fluids to prevent dehydration The direct effectiveness of infant rotavirus vaccination implemented in 2006 in the United States has been evaluated extensively, however, understanding of population-level vaccine effectiveness (VE) is still incomplete. We analyzed time series data on rotavirus gastroenteritis (RVGE) and all-cause acute gastroenteritis (AGE) hospitalization rates in the United States from the MarketScan.
The RotaTeq vaccine has been used since 2006 and is made with a hybrid strain that is a reassortment of human-bovine strains.

Apart from a low risk of intussusception (up to 6 per 100 000 infants vaccinated) 1 the current rotavirus vaccines are considered safe and well tolerated We also analysed the age distribution of rotavirus-positive cases before and after vaccine introduction. Findings: 403 140 children younger than 5 years of age admitted to hospital with acute gastroenteritis from 349 sites in 82 countries were enrolled over the study period, of whom 132 736 (32·9%) were positive for rotavirus

RotaTeq (R): 2 mL (1 dosing tube), orally, for 3 doses, administered 4 to 10 weeks apart. Comments: -Administer beginning at 6 weeks of age; the 2 dose series/Rotarix (R) should be completed by 24 weeks of age; the 3 dose series/RotaTeq (R) should be completed by 32 weeks. -Rotarix (R): If the infant spits out or regurgitates most of the dose.
Background: Rotavirus remains an important cause of gastroenteritis and has been associated with the hospitalization of 34 to 53 per 10 000 children <5 years of age in the United States annually from 2008 to 2012.
