Were you looking for information about Rotavirus Vaccine? Rotovirus vaccine is a common misspelling of rotavirus vaccine.
 
The rotavirus vaccine (Rotarix®, RotaTeq®) is a routine childhood vaccine used for preventing a common but potentially serious infection that can cause severe diarrhea (often resulting in hospitalization). It is different than a lot of other vaccines, as it is given by mouth and not injected. There are currently two different versions of the vaccine; one is given as two doses, and the other is given as three separate doses.
