Abstract

EuroRotaNet was launched to monitor rotavirus strain prevalence during and after introduction of rotavirus vaccines in Europe. In early 2007, we detected P[6],G9 rotaviruses to appear in Hungary, representing the first documented occurrence of this strain in our surveillance area. Epidemiologic data suggested that this strain was introduced from India.
