Q:

Hi. My baby is 3 months old. Rotavirus vaccination is optimal... Can I ignore this vaccination or give it to my kid?



Prithvi Balaji

Best is to give as rotavirus is very common these days and it is a risky virus too.

Sonali Shivlani

Rota virus affects babies under one year of age and generally in the winters. Since we are in the winter season currently and your baby is less than one year it is advisable to vaccinate. If contracted the symptoms of the illness can last for fifteen days and this is naturally very uncomfortable for the baby as well as the family.
