Finland has been vaccinating children from rotavirus since 2009.

This has led to a 10 fold fall in the number of children getting a rotavirus infection by the age of 5.

There has also been a fall (they don’t say how much of a fall) in children being diagnosed with type one diabetes.

This supports the belief that rotavirus is a trigger for inducing islet cell autoimmunity.
