Prevention and control measures for rotavirus
Two rotavirus vaccines were authorised for prevention of rotavirus gastroenteritis in 2006. Authorised vaccines provide a high level of protection against severe disease in need of medical attention. Evidence suggests that rotavirus vaccination should be initiated before 12 weeks of age and can be administered together with other infant vaccines.
