There also is a small risk of intussusception from rotavirus vaccination. Symptoms and signs of intussusception are stomach pain along with severe crying, vomiting, blood in the stool, and the baby or child could appear weak or very irritable. If you think it is intussusception, call a doctor right away or go to the Emergency Department, and let them know when your baby got the rotavirus vaccine.
