[Q&A] Rota Virus

Question: Hi Doctor, Anak saya kini berumur 8bulan setengah. She had taken twice of vaccination of rota virus before but already missed out the last one. I also heard that since she is now 8 months plus, she cant longer take the final dose. so i assume now the best way is only pencegahan bagi mengelakkan jangkitan virus ini dari berjangkit ke anak saya. Am i right? :( thanks.

Answer: HI Zarra, Research shows that incomplete series of rotavirus vaccine provides some protection against rotavirus gastroenteritis. Jangkitan usus boleh disebabkan oleh kuman lain juga selain kuman rotavirus dan vaksin rotavirus hanya melindungi untuk kuman itu sahaja. Anyhow, practise good hand hygiene.
