Los Angeles Times

The infants who get the rotavirus vaccine aren’t the only ones who benefit. New research shows that older children and even adults were less likely to be hospitalized with the gastrointestinal virus after the vaccine was introduced in the U.S. in 2006.

Rotavirus causes “severe watery diarrhea, often with vomiting, fever, and abdominal pain,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
