Abstract

Retrospective analysis done at a children's hospital showed significant decrease in infections and hospitalizations caused by rotavirus in northeast Florida after the introduction of rotavirus vaccines in 2006. The rotavirus season was delayed in onset by 8 months and duration prolonged by 2–3 months in 2008, and no definite season occurred in 2009.
