Variation in Rotavirus Vaccine Coverage by Provider Location and Subsequent Disease Burden

This article, published in Pediatrics, reports on a study that examined variation in rotavirus vaccine coverage among provider locations in the United States and correlated coverage with the detection of rotavirus in children who sought treatment of severe acute gastroenteritis. Full-series coverage of rotavirus vaccine is lower than for other vaccines, and disease continues to occur. The authors determined that the highest detection of rotavirus disease occurred among locations with low rotavirus vaccine coverage, suggesting that ongoing disease transmission is related to failure to vaccinate. ABSTRACT ONLY. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
