In brief: Not all of them

There is one vaccine against the rotovirus, given in the first 6 mo of life to some infants.
There is no general vaccine for the dozens of other viruses that can cause gastroenteritis.

Yes, to some extent.
One form of viral gastro called rotavirus gastroenteritis can be vaccinated against. Merck makes RotaTeq and gsk makes rotarix, both of which help prevent infection with roatvirus gastro.
