Q.

Rotovirus and prevenar Vaccines

Hi Doc,

I have taken my baby for these vaccines at 6, 10 and 14 weeks except for the rotavirus at 14 weeks because the sister at the private clinic said only two shots are sufficient for this vaccine. Is this correct because this is not according to what I read on the your baby magazine. Do I need to take him for the third shot of rotavirus/rotateq before he is six months or not?

Thanks.

Two treatments with the Rotavirus vaccine are sufficient.
