Afternoon, I want to ask about the rotavirus vaccine. My child is now 4 months 25 days old, born August 27, 2018. Can I still receive the rotavirus vaccine?

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question

Rotavirus vaccine is given to prevent rotavirus infection which causes diarrhea in children with severe dehydration. The rotavirus vaccine in Indonesia currently has 2 types. Pentavalent vaccine (Rotateq) is given as many as 3 doses, where the first administration is at 6-14 weeks of age and the second administration after 4-8 weeks later, and the maximum third dose at 8 months of age. The second type is the monovalent vaccine (Rotarix) given as many as 2 doses, namely the first dose given at 6-14 weeks of age and the second dose at age after a minimum time interval of weeks, and given before 24 weeks of age.

If the child has not been immunized at the age of more than 6-8 months, it does not need to be given because there are no safety studies. Both types of rotavirus vaccine can still be given at the age of your child, but you should need to be consulted again with your pediatrician to pursue immunization.

That's all, hope you can help
Wassalam.
