Sorry, you are right, I should have said, 'rarely'. Careless typing when I'm in a hurry.

Which brand? I know there are 2 brands. The one that is recommended to not use is Rotarix. This is what I read:
The warning follows an academic research group's discovery -- subsequently confirmed by the FDA and Rotarix manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline -- that the vaccine contains a pig virus called porcine circovirus 1, or PCV1. The virus is not known to cause illness in humans, and no adverse effects have been observed in children vaccinated with Rotarix, but the agency decided to err on the side of caution with the warning until more information can be obtained. http://www.medpagetoday.com/Infectio...Vaccines/20595
And the CDC says vaccines are safe, ha!
Haven't heard anything bad about Rotateq though.
What do you mean by protection for shingles? The vax might lesson the chance of getting shingles.... but it still exposes you to virus and doesn't protect against getting shingles.
Besides, there's now a vax for shingles.... It used to be that 30 year olds (and children) rarely got shingles, but since the vax for chicken pox more and more younger people and children seem to be getting shingles.
I mean I have friends in their 30's that had naturally gotten the chicken pox as a child are coming down with shingles quite bad cases too. These are people that never had the vax just naturally got them as a child. S o I do not know how one could relate or link them to the "newish" vax. Just a thought!
