FDA Approves Rotavirus Vaccine

The FDA has approved a new vaccine from Merck to protect kids against the rotavirus. Amanda had this last March and it was just awful. The vomiting and diarhea required constant attention and giving her fluids to prevent her from getting dangerously dehydrated. Even then, she lost about 3 lbs. -- and she only weighed about 19 lbs. to start with.

If you have small kids talk to your pediatrician about the vaccine.
