A Multi-Center, Qualitative Assessment of Pediatrician and Maternal Perspectives on Rotavirus Vaccines and the Detection of Porcine circovirus

This article, published in BMC Pediatrics, reports on research that evaluated perceptions among physicians and mothers after the 2011 finding of DNA fragments of Porcine circovirus in rotavirus vaccines. Physicians expressed that the finding was of no clinical significance, largely referring to large-scale clinical trials that found no safety concerns. Mothers emphasized transparency and relied on the guidance of their physicians, who continued to recommend rotavirus vaccination for infants.
