Rotavirus Vaccines (Rotavirus Vaccine)

Also known as Rotavirus Vaccine, Rotavirus Vaccine, Live, Oral, and Rotarix

A rotavirus vaccine protects children from rotaviruses, which are the leading cause of severe diarrhea among infants and young children. Each year an estimated 453,000 children die from diarrhoeal disease caused by rotavirus, most of whom live in developing countries, and another two million are hospitalised. Rotavirus is highly contagious and resistant and, regardless of water quality and available sanitation nearly every child in the world is at risk of infection.
