Diarrhea after Rototeq

rotavirus vaccine

My baby is 10 weeks old. she got her shots and rototaq last friday. Since 2 days she is vomiting a lot ( 10-20ml, 2 or 3 times after each feeding), sometimes it is forceful and she cries after vomiting when it is forceful. It is watery. Is it due to rototaq? She also arches her back while feeding. I feed 120-150ml of expressed breastmilk 6-7 times a day. She is having  5-7 wet and 2-3 soiled diapers.

Diarrhea and vomiting are the top two listed side effects with Rotateq. According to the Rotateq package insert, diarrhea was reported in 24.1% of recipients at least once over the course of three doses (versus 21.3% of the placebo group). Vomiting was reported in 15.2% of the study group compared to 13.6% of the placebo group. The majority of these symptoms occurred after the first vaccination.

While these symptoms are common after Rotateq vaccination they could have another cause. It seems your daughter case may be more severe that typical. I would recommend you have your daughter evaluated by your doctor if she is still having these symptoms.
