FDA Issues Warning for RotaTeq Vaccine

RotaTeq Vaccine

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning that the RotaTeq vaccine may be connected to a severe intestinal condition in young children. Known as intussusception, the condition leads to blockage or twisting of the intestines.

RotaTeq is used to vaccinate against rotavirus, a sickness causing nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fevers in children. This is not the first time a rotavirus vaccine has been connected to intussusception, leading the FDA to issue its warning.

Although the 28 reported occurrences of intussusception have not been inconclusively linked to RotaTeq, the FDA would like to encourage parents and doctors to report any instances of the condition in children that have received the vaccination.
