8 Rotavirus vaccine administration, Module 4 | 21 February |8 | Can rotavirus vaccine be given at the same time as other childhood vaccines? Rotavirus vaccine can be administered with any of the following routine childhood vaccines without interfering with their effectiveness: –Diphtheria–tetanus–pertussis vaccine (DTP) –Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine (Hib) –Inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) –Hepatitis B vaccine –Pneumococcal vaccine –Oral polio vaccine (OPV) Give oral vaccines like OPV and rotavirus vaccine first, then give other injectable childhood vaccines

9 Rotavirus vaccine administration, Module 4 | 21 February |9 | The child is 6 weeks old. You give him/her OPV, rotavirus and pentavalent vaccines. In which order should you give the vaccines? What should you do in this scenario?

10 Rotavirus vaccine administration, Module 4 | 21 February | The child should be seated in a semi reclining position to take the vaccine orally How to position the child for rotavirus vaccination?

11 Rotavirus vaccine administration, Module 4 | 21 February | How to position the vaccine? Open the childs mouth by gently pressing the cheeks together Angle the tube towards the inner cheek

12 Rotavirus vaccine administration, Module 4 | 21 February | How to administer the vaccine? Administer the vaccine by pressing the tube –Squeeze the tube slowly Make sure the child is swallowing the vaccine –Hold the cheeks together and stroke him/her under the chin to help with swallowing

13 Rotavirus vaccine administration, Module 4 | 21 February | What to do if the infant spits out part of the vaccine? A dose of rotavirus vaccine is larger than a dose of oral polio vaccine (RotaTq = 2 mL, Polio= 3 drops) To prevent spitting –Place the tip of the tube towards the inside of the child's cheek –Slowly administer the vaccine in small portions A replacement dose is not needed if an incomplete dose is administered for any reason –E.g. infant spits or regurgitates the vaccine

14 Rotavirus vaccine administration, Module 4 | 21 February | How many vials to take for outreach? Rotavirus vaccine can be given at the same time as pentavalent vaccine For outreach take the same amount of pentavalent single dose vials as rotavirus vaccine tubes Unused and sealed rotavirus tubes brought back from outreach should be immediately kept in the refrigerator for use in the next session

15 Rotavirus vaccine administration, Module 4 | 21 February | Key messages Check and interpret expiration date on the tube cap before giving the vaccine When opening the rotavirus vaccine tube, twist the tube cap clockwise to remove the tip seal Give the OPV and rotavirus vaccine first, then administer other injectable vaccines The rotavirus vaccine dose quantity is larger than that of oral polio vaccine (RotaTeq 2 mL) and infants may not take the full dose all at once –To prevent spitting, slowly administer the vaccine in small amounts and properly place the tip of the tube towards the inside of the child's cheek –If the infant spits out some or all of the vaccine, a replacement dose is not needed during that visit

16 Rotavirus vaccine administration, Module 4 | 21 February | End of module Thank you for your attention!
