How To Administer The Rotavirus Vaccine?
noon want to ask, if the rotavirus vaccine is injected hmm, because as far as I know the rotavirus vaccine is dropped (oral). Is there any side effect if the oral vaccine is injectable ?? tks
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
Rotavirus immunization is a way to bring up the immune system against rotavirus virus infection in infants without causing disease. This virus will cause gastroenteritis or infection in the stomach to the intestine. Symptoms that appear in the form of nausea, vomiting, abdominal discomfort, diarrhea and fever. Severe diarrhea can occur, causing the baby to experience severe dehydration, which is characterized by decreased awareness, do not want to drink, weakness, cold feet and hands, no pee, fast pulse, no tears and shortness of breath.
The rotavirus virus is transmitted through exposure to stool that contains the rotavirus virus. The habit of not washing hands after changing a baby's diaper will increase the risk of transmission of the rotavirus virus.
The vaccine contains live attenuated rotavirus. The vaccine is given orally, none by injection. You should ask this question again to the medical person who injected it earlier. The vaccine is given to babies aged 2 months, 4 months and 6 months.
What you can do to prevent rotavirus-related diseases is to keep your food clean by washing your hands before processing food, washing your hands when you finish from the bathroom and washing your hands after changing baby's diapers.
Thus, hopefully useful.
