I just googled "how long does the rota virus vaccine protect" and this was the first link. There's a FAQ, but I didn't read through it.

I saw that last night looking for answers. It says:



"In developed countries, rotavirus vaccines have been shown to protect infants who receive the vaccine before they reach 8 months of age in both the first and second years of life.
Efficacy in the second year of life appears to be lower in developing countries, but further evaluation is required to understand in which populations and under what circumstances vaccine efficacy declines"



Sooo it seems like only the first 2 years and protects less in the 2 year than the first.
