Using data from rotavirus vaccine effectiveness (VE) studies, we assessed whether rotavirus season modifies rotavirus VE in infants. In the first year of life, adjusted VE was 72% for children born during rotavirus season and 84% for children born in other months (P = .01). Seasonal factors may interfere with vaccine performance.
