Vaccine Introduction

To date, over 90 countries have introduced rotavirus vaccines into their national immunization programs nationally or sub-nationally. Most of the countries that have introduced rotavirus vaccines are either upper-middle- or high-income countries in the Americas, or Gavi-eligible countries in Africa. Very few Asian countries have introduced rotavirus vaccines into their national immunization programs.

Fewer than 1 in 2 children globally have access to rotavirus vaccines.1
