Rotavirus vaccine Rss

Does anyone know where to get information on the rotavirus vaccine?

I have tried googling rotavirus and cant get any good info. I am particularly trying to find out about getting an older baby (six months) vaccinated.

Anyone else looking into this?

Hi Hayley, they had a sign up at my local Dr's surgery about the vaccine, maybe you could call up your local clinic and find out more about it that way.

I found these links for you,
I hope they help.

It seems like the recommendation is for the vaccine at 2, 4 and 6 months, but I can't see why you couldn't have them later.
