As per vaccination schedule of my baby there are 3 vaccines for Rotavirus and vaccination name in chart mentioned as Rotateq. As of now 2 vaccines of Rotarix has been given to my baby n doctor advised that there is no need of 3 vaccine for Rotavirus as we hv given Rotarix in place of Rotateq because 2 vaccines Rotarix is equal to 3 vaccines of Rotateq. My baby is 3 months old as of now n 3rd vaccine is scheduled on Aug 01, 2016. Can you please advise if 3rd vaccine of Rotarix is needed or not?health Corner
Considering your son was administered the Rotarix vaccination he doesn't need the third dose as Rotarix (RV1) contains an attenuated human rotavirus strain; 2 doses are given in the series. Hope this answer your query.
