Trends in Intussusception Hospitalizations Among US Infants Before and After Implementation of the Rotavirus Vaccination Program, 2000-2009

This article, published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases, reports on surveillance conducted following rotavirus vaccine introduction in 2006 that noted a small increase in intussusception among US infants aged 8 to 11 weeks, who would have received a first dose of vaccine. However, the authors conclude that surveillance and evaluation have not revealed a sustained population-level change in overall intussusception rates. ABSTRACT ONLY.
