The World Health Organization recommends that rotavirus vaccines be introduced into every country’s national immunization program, particularly in countries where diarrheal disease is a major health problem. These maps (worldwide or Gavi-supported) show the countries that have introduced rotavirus vaccine. As of May 1, 2016, 81 countries have introduced rotavirus vaccines in their national immunization programs (i.e., public sector). Other countries have introduced rotavirus vaccines in phased or regional introductions. Rotavirus vaccines are also available in more than 100 countries through the private market.
