Overview: Decreasing national rotavirus rate after rotavirus vaccine introduction

Seasonality: National monthly rotavirus rates before and after rotavirus vaccine introduction

State Seasonality: Monthly rotavirus rate by state before and after rotavirus vaccine introduction

Rotavirus Vaccination Uptake: Animated map

Rotavirus rate in each state before and after rotavirus vaccine introduction by year

Rotavirus Vaccination impact for every state: Increasing vaccine uptake over time reduces rotavirus related medical encounters

Post-Vaccination: Maximum rotavirus related medical encounter rate by county 2015 - 2017

Overview: Decreasing national rotavirus rate after rotavirus vaccine introduction

This animated line graph summarizes the rate of rotavirus gastroenteritis at the national level from January 1996 through June 2017. The currently licensed vaccine was introduced in the US in 2006. There was a rapid uptake of the vaccine between 2006 and 2008: The visualization demonstrates that the seasonal rotavirus peaks greatly decrease as vaccine uptake continues to increase after 2008 (see methodology).

Rotavirus gastroenteritis rate (visits per 1,000 children)

Rotavirus vaccination rate (percent of eligible children)

The monthly rotavirus rate is calculated as the sum of the weekly rate of hospitalizations from rotavirus gastroenteritis. The monthly vaccination rate is the mean of the weekly vaccination rate among members of the study group.
