Mailbag! Hey Doc….Why is the Rotavirus on the rise, even with a vaccine?

Rotavirus is a contagious virus that can cause gastroenteritis (inflammation of the stomach and intestines) and is easily spread among young children.  For the past 40 years, vaccinations have become less and less effective and CDC reports that the Rotavirus is on the rise.  Efforts to avoid Rotavirus are what actually caused it to spread.  But why?

  • Why isn’t the vaccination effective and what’s driving up the increase in Rotavirus cases?
