Q.

Tummy bug injection

Hallo doctor

Hope you are doing well.

I believe there is a tummy bug going around, but that there is an injection you can get from the hospital if you have the bug. Do you perhaps know anything about this?

Thank you and enjoy your day.

You are correct. There is a new vaccination against the rotavirus for babies which is given by mouth at 2 months and 4months of age.
