  • Scheduling & Administration

If the first dose of rotavirus vaccine is inadvertently given to a child age 15 weeks 0 days or older, should the series be continued?

Infants for whom the first dose of rotavirus vaccine was inadvertently administered at age 15 weeks or older should receive the remaining doses of the series at the routinely recommended intervals. Timing of the first dose should not affect the safety and efficacy of the remaining doses. Rotavirus vaccine should not be given after age 8 months 0 days even if the series is incomplete.
