With rotaviral gastroenteritis

Rotavirus which invaded from mouth infects intestinal tract and develops. Even if infection power is very strong and gets a grip in hand-washing or disinfection, it is difficult to prevent infection, and most children infect to the house of infants.
Diarrhea and vomiting are cured in around one week, but if diarrhea, vomiting become intense, dehydration may be caused and is infectious disease that there is the most in hospitalization of acute gastroenteritis of infants.
It is virus transmitted many times during life, but when we were infected with rotavirus for the first time, it is easy to be aggravated in particular and may rarely have an influence on brain and kidney, and attention is necessary.
As we may be infected after the life immediately, inoculation of vaccine will let you complete at early time.

Method of Vaccinations

There are two kinds in rotaviral vaccine and is vaccine drinking both in live vaccine (virus which we attenuated). There is not difference in protective efficacy and safety, but please inoculate either vaccine into two vaccine after consultation with doctor of medical institution in consideration of inoculation schedules with other vaccine as the inoculation number of times is different.
In addition, please inoculate vaccine which you inoculated first after the second as it is not possible to change type of vaccine halfway in principle.
As it is period when inoculations of much vaccine [Streptococcus pneumoniae, hepatitis B for Hib (hibu), children] occur at the same time, it, please consider after consultation with doctor of medical institution to inoculate in conjunction with other vaccination at the same time.
You are inner [from two months after birth to birth 14 weeks six days later], and please complete all inoculation during inoculation period when the first is standard. (initial vaccinations after 0 days later does not recommend for birth 15 weeks.)
