Need more reasons to believe in vaccines?
Rotavirus is a common cause of gastroenteritis in babies, which can result in severe dehydration and admission to hospital.
Vaccinating babies against a virus that can cause diarrhea and vomiting also seems to protect some adults, a U.S. study suggests.
In Tuesday’s online issue of JAMA, researchers from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta said they found fewer adults were getting severe cases of gastroenteritis after rotavirus vaccination became standard for infants.
