 Rotavirus vaccine drug information

The Rotarix vaccine is used to prevent rotavirus-induced gastroenteritis. Rotavirus infection can affect people of all ages, but is more common in infants and children. Fever, vomiting and diarrhea are symptoms of rotavirus infection. The infection usually lasts 3-8 days, but can lead to dehydration problems in children. Rotavirus infection can be easily spread through close contact with an infected person. The virus can spread to an infected child's hands after going to the toilet (hand contact with feces) or through the hands of someone who changes an infected child's diaper.

A vaccine immunization program has been in place in the UK since January 2013 to protect infants against rotavirus. These two doses of the vaccine are for infants before 6 months of age. The vaccine is given as an oral liquid at the same time as other childhood vaccinations.

After receiving this vaccine, your baby's natural defense system will produce antibodies against common types of rotavirus, which protect against rotavirus infection.
