3 doctors agree
In brief: Rotateq or Rotarix
There are two rotavirus vaccines in the U.
S.. Both are live-virus oral vaccines. Rotateq is given in 3 doses, and Rotarix is 2 doses. A baby can start with one vaccine, and should finish the series with the same vaccine, but he doesn't have to. It is ok for him to finish with the series with the other vaccine.
