Brief Answer: hi Detailed Answer: Thanks for your follow up. You should give plenty of fluids,vegetable soup.,fruit juice home made,rice porridge,dhalia. Regarding vaccination if already taken than no need to give again. It is to be given after every 3 years. Most important is to take care of hygeine as mode of transmission is feco oral route.
