Rotavirus Vaccine Group Evaluation and Forecasting Rules

General Rules for Rotavirus

General rules are not series-specific; general rules apply to the entire vaccine group.

Rules Based on Patient's Age

  • If the patient is >= 105 days old (i.e., >= 15 weeks old) and has not received any doses of rotavirus vaccine, then the Recommendation is Not Recommended and the reason code is TOO_OLD_TO_INITIATE (new recommendation code).
  • If the patient is >= 105 days old (i.e., >= 15 weeks old) when dose 1 is administered, dose 2 is still recommended, unless the patient is currently > 8 months 0 days, or will be > 8 months 0 days on the recommended date due.
  • If the patient is currently > 8 months 0 days, or will be > 8 months 0 days on the recommended date due, then the Recommendation is Not Recommended and the reason code is TOO_OLD.
  • If the patient is > 8 months of age on the date of administration, then the Evaluation is Accepted and the reason code is ABOVE_REC_AGE_SERIES.
  • Shots administered to a patient > 8 months of age do not count toward completion of the series; the series can NOT be completed once the patient is > 8 months old.

  • If dose 1 is CVX 119 (rotavirus, monovalent (Rotarix, 2 dose)) then the 2-dose series applies.
  • If dose 1 and dose 2 are CVX 119 (rotavirus, monovalent (Rotarix, 2-dose)) then the 2-dose series applies and is complete.
