Should we warn parents/guardians to wash their hands after diaper changes, which they should be doing anyway, after the baby has received rotavirus vaccine?

Yes. Rotavirus vaccine virus is shed during the first weeks after administration of rotavirus vaccine. Handwashing after diaper changing is always recommended.
