Nicaragua was one of the first countries to introduce the rotavirus vaccine. Rotavirus diarrhoea kills approximately 500,000 children under five every year. Research in Nicaragua showed that the vaccine prevented 60% of cases of severe rotavirus and halved the number of hospitalisations and emergency room visits.
