Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Group A
All children ≤ 5 years old with a rotavirus detection test (inpatient and ambulatory tests) performed during the period of June the 1st 2010 and May the 31st 2011.
Other: Data collection
Each participating centre will be requested to generate a coded list of all stool samples taken during the study period (June 1st 2010- May 31st 2011) and analysed for rotavirus, in children aged ≤5 years.

Detailed Description:

This retrospective study will use anonymised data, extracted from hospital databases during the period of the 1st of June 2010 until the 31st of May 2011. IMS Health sales data will be used to provide rotavirus vaccine coverage estimates (Rotarix and Rotateq) for the Belgian population during the study period. Any additional source of vaccine coverage status describing rotavirus vaccine uptake in the study population will also be reported.
