Additional Information

Official title Assessing the Rotavirus Positive Test Results in 11 Hospitals in Belgium From 2005 to 2013: the RotaBIS Study (Rotavirus Belgian Impact Study)
Description This retrospective study will use anonymised data, extracted from hospital databases during the period of the 1st of June 2010 until the 31st of May 2011. IMS Health sales data will be used to provide rotavirus vaccine coverage estimates (Rotarix and Rotateq) for the Belgian population during the study period. Any additional source of vaccine coverage status describing rotavirus vaccine uptake in the study population will also be reported.
