Why bother with Rotavirus Vaccination?
Rotavirus isn’t fun for anyone. Neither are vaccines.
After the events of the last 2 years anyone with a functioning brain is questioning the utility of mass vaccination. Childhood vaccines are often sold as a necessary tool for eliminating childhood illness, preventing us from falling into a state of disarray as our children spontaneously combust before our very eyes.
Rotavirus may unpleasant, but is really worth getting vaccinated over?
Rotavirus causes gastroenteritis which means inflammation (itis) of the mucosal surfaces of the stomach (gastro) and bowel (entero). It causes mild to severe nausea and vomiting, a fever, and diarrhea. At times the diarrhea can become severe, but that’s rare.
According to every study I could find, the number of deaths caused by Rotavirus in the USA each year was less than 50.
