Is Rotavirus Vaccine Obligatory? Know the Time and Impact If You Don’t Get It
There are many types of vaccines that parents need to give their little one starting from the time the baby is born. As Mother knows, vaccination in infants and children has many benefits.
Reported by the Indonesian Pediatrician Association (IDAI) website, vaccination is useful for increasing your child’s immunity, so that he can fight diseases that can be prevented with these vaccines. If babies or children don’t get vaccinated, they have a greater risk of contracting the disease.
One of the vaccines that should not be missed is rotavirus which can easily spread between babies and children.
Why do children need to be vaccinated against rotavirus?
This virus can cause severe diarrhea, vomiting, fever, and stomach pain. Children with rotavirus disease can become dehydrated and may even need to be hospitalized.
For this reason, it is recommended that babies get the rotavirus vaccine to protect them from rotavirus disease starting at 2 months of age. Launching the Healthy Children page, the rotavirus vaccine can prevent rotavirus disease which causes acute diarrhea in infants and children. This diarrhea can be severe, causing dehydration, vomiting, and fever.
Administration of rotavirus vaccine
Rotavirus looks like a spinning wheel when viewed under a microscope, so it is highly contagious. This potentially lethal virus causes severe acute gastroenteritis with diarrhea and vomiting, especially in infants and children.
Fortunately, there are two rotavirus vaccines that can protect children from this disease. The rotavirus vaccine is given by dripping it into the child’s mouth.
Babies should get two or three doses of rotavirus vaccine, depending on the brand of vaccine used. Here are the terms Mother:
The first dose should be given before 15 weeks of age. The last dose should be given at 8 months of age.
Almost all babies who get the rotavirus vaccine will avoid severe rotavirus diarrhea. The rotavirus vaccine can also be given at the same time as other vaccines.
Launching the WebMD page, before the introduction of the rotavirus vaccine, rotavirus infections resulted in 200,000 emergency room visits, 55,000 hospitalizations, and 60 to 65 deaths each year in the United States. Older children and adults can also be infected with this virus, but the disease is generally milder.
