It is important to understand that temperature is a normal protective reaction to infection in the body. Therefore, it makes no sense to “cure” the temperature, but you need to influence the cause of the disease.

When I talk about the vaccine against rotavirus, I immediately recall the meme: “Have you already managed to make Rotatek a child?” And in the picture is a character with a stern look. The period of summer rest only reached the middle. Someone else plans to relax in early autumn with the whole family. A rotavirus vaccine can save your vacation.
