    My 6 month old has not been vaccinated for Rotavirus. The people at the health department said that because she missed her 2 month and 4 month vaccinations for RV that she can not now receive the vaccine. I want my baby to be immunized. I was wondering if anyone would know why they told me that she can not receive this vaccine.
