Hello, I want to ask. my child aged 6 to 7 months, has never been vaccinated against rotavirus, if at present he is given rotavirus, can it still be done, and how many times?

1 Answer:

Hello Tama,


Rotavirus vaccine is an additional vaccine recommended for infants 2-6 months. This vaccine can prevent rotavirus infection which can cause diarrhea in infants. In Indonesia there are 2 kinds of rotavirus vaccines, which are given in 3x doses and 2x doses.


For vaccines with 3 doses, the first dose is given at the age of 6-14 weeks, then 4-8 weeks after the first vaccine, and the third dose is given at the maximum age of 8 months. Whereas in vaccines with 2x doses, the first dose is given 10 weeks, then the second dose at 14 weeks (maximum given at 6 months).


If the child is more than 6-8 months old and has never received a rotavirus vaccine, then the child does not need to be given the rotavirus vaccine because the safety level cannot be ascertained.


You don't need to worry about this. You can consult further with your pediatrician about administering the recommended additional vaccine in addition to the mandatory vaccine.


Hope it helps you,


Thank you
