UK babies to get Rotavirus vaccine to prevent stomach bug

All babies in the UK are to be offered a vaccination against a highly infectious vomiting and diarrhoea bug, which causes around 14,000 young children to be hospitalised every year.

The Department of Health said the vaccine against Rotavirus would be offered from September 2013 and would be given in two doses after two and three months.
