Rotavirus Immunization
(Rototeq)

rotavirus vaccine

The Rotovirus vaccine is different from the already mentioned vaccines for two reasons: (1) it is given as a drink (no shots) and (2) it is not a required vaccination.

Rotovirus is what my parents called the stomach flu. This virus typically causes the worst cases of vomiting, diarrhea and fever. Children often become dehydrated when they contract this illness.

The current rotovirus vaccine was approved by the FDA in February 2006. Listed side effects in upset stomach and diarrhea. I personally have seen two cases of bloody diarrhea likely caused by the vaccine. My two youngest boys (my only children young enough to receive the vaccine) tolerated it well.
