Health Tip: Prevent Rotavirus

(HealthDay News) -- Rotavirus causes diarrhea, vomiting, fever and abdominal pain. It is highly contagious, especially among young children with weaker immune systems, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

Children can become dehydrated and may require hospitalization. Symptoms of dehydration include decrease in urination, dry mouth and throat, feeling dizzy when standing up and crying with few or no tears.

The CDC suggests these ways to prevent illness from rotavirus:

  • Wash well after changing a diaper.
  • Protect those at greatest risk of rotavirus illness by getting the rotavirus vaccine.
  • Up to 98 percent of children who get rotavirus vaccine will be protected from severe rotavirus disease, the CDC says.
