Rotavirus season is here. This virus causes a moderate to severe amount of diarrhea and vomiting. Many infants and toddlers who contract Rotavirus become dehydrated and need medical attention. Fortunately, a vaccine, which is not a shot, but given by mouth, is now available to prevent this illness. The vaccine is given at the 2-month, 4-month, and 6-month old checkups. If you have an infant in those age ranges, ask us about the vaccine.
