2 different vaccines: There are 2 brands available: Rotarix (2 dose schedule) and RotaTeq (3 dose schedule) both are started at baby's 2 month visit though can be given as early as six weeks. A second dose is given 6-8 weeks later (can receive as early as 4 weeks after) and third dose (depending on which vaccine) no later than 32 weeks of age. This is given by mouth and not as a shot.

No: I don't believe there is any data that would support the assertion that rotovirus causes food allergy.
