Human Vaccines & Immunotherapeutics, 2016 05; 12(5): 1235-1243. e-pub ahead of print 2016/02/24; doi: 10.1080/21645515.2015.1136041

A retrospective observational cohort study was conducted using Medicaid administrative claims data from four states in the United States (US) to analyze overall and state-specific compliance and completion rates for rotavirus (RV) vaccines. Major predictors of compliance to RV vaccination were use of RV1 vaccine and DTaP vaccination completion. Increased awareness to the importance and timeliness of vaccination is needed.
