I heard that the new rotavirus vaccine for infants should not be given because of possible side effects. Is that true? What is the danger?

Yes. The newest generation rotavirus vaccine has been linked to an intestinal condition called 'intussusception'...[which a rare condition which needs emergent treatment. It is classically recognized by a 'lump' in the abdomen and stool that has the appearance of currant jelly.] there have been case reports in mexico, and brazil and the overall risk of the rarity is about 1 in 60-70, 000 patients.

No. The same experts who put the vaccines on hold ultimately determined they are safe and effective. In my mind, that's a highly reassuring mark of integrity. Rotavirus used to be a "season" on the pediatric ward--bed after miserable bed of febrile, dehydrated infants on IV fluids for profuse vomiting and explosive diarrhea. There's no cure, but these vaccines basically took rota off the map. Read more...
New Rotateq is ok. The old vaccine 20 years ago had intussusception side effects (intestinal problem). New RotaTeq doesn't seem to have the side effect, meaning the chance of getting intuss. Is the same with or without rotateq. Rotateq is safe enough for babies, to prevent rotavirus diarrhea&dehydration (& death in 3rd world countries). Gsk-rotarix caused a slight increase in intuss. In mexico (1 in 100, 000 babies). Read more...
Not True. So far the "new" vaccine appears quite safe with no evidence of serious side effects.And the experts continually moniter the vaccine for side effects.And since the vaccine has been used the number of children taken to er's with severe rotavirus dehydration has declined from roughly 400, 000 per year to about 100, 000 per year. Huge and this will only get better. Read more...
