ROTAVIRUS VACCINATIONS. WHAT SHOULD CHANGE?
MEETING REPORT 2019
The Working Group raised several areas that need to be explored. Direct costs, indirect costs (both individual and public health perspective) and societal impact must be taken into consideration by policymakers. Rotavirus vaccines can be safely administered in infants living in households with immune-compromised individuals, but all children should receive what’s best for their health. Consequently, the best approach is a universal rotavirus vaccination. The rotavirus vaccine is beneficial across the whole family rather than just the recipient and their contribution to national economic well being is sincerely underestimated.
