Rotavirus vaccine available from VNA
The Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association is offering the newly available Rotavirus vaccine. Rotavirus infects children between 6 and 24 months of age and causes three significant symptoms: high fever, vomiting and diarrhea. The vaccine is given by mouth in three separate doses at 2, 4 and 6 months of age. The vaccine cannot be given outside of this age range. Children’s vaccines are given on a sliding fee scale, and no child will be refused a vaccine because of an inability to pay. Call 879-1632 to make an appointment for your infant.
