In brief: No
Rotavirus is one of the main causes of diarrhea related deaths worldwide in infants & children.
It is also one of the prime reasons kids in the US are hospitalized for dehydration. The vaccine has been effective in reducing these admissions within the populations that use them. However, they remain optional.
