The number of children suffering from severe diarrhea related to Rotavirus has dropped dramatically since a vaccine was introduced in 2006.
A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds Rotavirus hospitalizations have gone down by as much as 94 percent.
There were 1.5 million fewer visits to the doctor for Rotavirus symptoms.
The study estimates this has saved about $900 million in health care costs.
