RotaShield: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:41 by admin
Rotashield is a vaccine manufactured by American Home Products, Inc. Rotashield was used to prevent rotavirus in infants. Recently, American Home Products removed Rotashield from the market after the company discovered that the vaccine may cause a bowel obstruction known as an intussusception. So far, over 100 cases of intussusception have been reported. The condition may cause nausea, abdominal pain and bloody stools. Occasionally intussusception may require surgery.

See a doctor if your child experienced serious side effects associated with Rotashield. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your child's legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
