    Default Spitting out the RotaTeq?

    My bub had her 6 month immunizations yesterday and all went well except for the oral RotaTeq. She lost a great deal of it - almost all I'd say. (Nurse a bit careless and rushed with it)

    I asked if that was okay and did bub get enough and the nurse said it apparently sticks to the roof of bubs mouth so that if they spit it out bub is still vaccinated.

    I did look up RotaTeq last night and their fact sheet says that if baby spits it out there is no need to redose it.

    I should have peace of mind from what the nurse said and also from what the fact sheet said... but I'm looking for more!

    Has anyone else had their baby spit it all out and did someone tell you it was okay?

    Sincerely,
    Mrs Paranoia.

    Yep both my DD's spat the majority of it out, and I was told not to worry about it.

    Default Spitting out the RotaTeq?

    It's okay if they spit it out it just means that the vaccine is highly orally available.

    This just means that it can be metabolized as soon as it crosses membranes in the mouth and doesn't need to be ingested to be effective
