New rotavirus vaccine available
The Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association is offering the newly available Rotavirus vaccine. Rotavirus infects children between six and 24 months of age and causes three significant symptoms: high fever, vomiting and diarrhea. The vaccine is given by mouth in three separate doses at two, four and six months of age. The vaccine cannot be given outside of this age range. Children's vaccines are given on a sliding fee scale, and no child will be refused a vaccine because of an inability to pay. Call 879-1632 to make an appointment for your infant.
