Yes Rotavirus vaccine (RVV) can be safely co-administered with OPV , given during the same doctor's visit along with DTaP, Hib vaccine, HBV vaccine, and conjugated Pneumo Vaccines.
Studies have shown that co-administration of RVV with these vaccines does not interfere with seroprotection rates or the overall effectiveness of the vaccines.
This makes it convenient for caregivers and healthcare providers to ensure children receive comprehensive immunization coverage in a single visit.
