Rotavirus Vaccines and Health Care Utilization for Diarrhea in the United States (2007–2011)

This article, published in Pediatrics, reports on a study that examined reductions in diarrhea-associated health care utilization after rotavirus vaccine implementation in the United States (US) in order to assess direct and indirect effectiveness of vaccination. The authors concluded that implementation of rotavirus vaccines has substantially reduced diarrhea health care utilization in US children. Vaccination also conferred indirect benefits to unvaccinated children.
