Can we give rotavirus vaccine after 2 days of vaccination with pentavalent and polio vaccine at 6 weeks.
Better not to give. Better to give either on the same day or 4 weeks apart for the maximal effect.

My baby is 6 weeks old. Rotavirus vaccination has been done on 03-09-18. Now, for other vaccines, one of the doctor advise us that we take at least 4 weeks gap. This delay in vaccination may effect any thing wrong. Please suggest what to do?

Please follow the updated and official National immunization programme schedule or the IAP immunization schedule. These are easily available online. It is not clear as to which rotavirus vaccine was given to your baby. As far as the other vaccines scheduled at 6 weeks are concerned, they can always be given at that same visit on which RV vaccine is given and if they haven’t been administered in the same sitting then the next convinient date can be availed. Gap is not an issue here.

First dose should be given before 14 weeks of life and last dose before 34 weeks. This is a standard recommendation. But this should not cause you much botheration.

I want to know about details of painless vaccination. Is there any side effect or any other demerit.
Painless vaccination for the majority of vaccines is a technology in its infancy, with ongoing experiments and clinical trials to deliver vaccines either orally, via aerosol or via the skin. There are a few exceptions, including oral vaccines for cholera, typhoid and rotavirus and a nasal spray for influenza (FluMist). However, for the majority of both pediatric and adult vaccinates, injections either subcutaneously (below the skin), intradermally (into the skin) or intramuscularly (into the muscle) are still the norm. For more information in lay terms, this report is reasonable. There is another vaccine DaPT (diptheria, acellular pertussis, tetanus) Due to the absence of these few antigens, painless vaccines produce little or no side effects like fever or local pain and swelling at the injection site. As a result, they lower the pain that your infant might experience otherwise. A painless vaccine preparation lacks a few immunity-stimulating components because of which it is less immunogenic in nature. The dosage of painless vaccines that has to be given to your little one is less than the amount of painful vaccines injected. This means that in order to produce the same effect, your child will require to be injected with more shots of a painless vaccine as compared to the painful one. They have a faster period of waning, which means that their effect doesn't stay for very long in the body whereas in the case of painful vaccines, antibody production is more and hence, protection is better and superior.

Yes rotavirus vaccine is to prevent rotaviral infection which cause diarrhoea in infants which is preventable one. Pcv is pneumococcal vaccine which is given to Prevent some of the known strains of virus which cause pneumonia in children. Both the vaccines are optional vaccine​ according to national immunization schedule but indian academy of pediatrics recommend both of these vaccine to the children.
