Employees should not be vaccinated against rotavirus

The Health Council sees no reason to vaccinate employees against rotavirus. Rotavirus infections in adults are not a major health problem and the risk of employees becoming ill is no higher than for other adults. The Council also does not believe that worker vaccination would protect other people, since employees would probably still be able to transmit the virus after vaccination. Moreover, rotavirus vaccines are not registered for use in adults.
Rotavirus infections can be serious in very young children. In 2021, the Health Council recommended vaccinating children against rotavirus.
