Rotavirus may precipitate type 1 diabetes (T1D).1,2 Thus, rotavirus vaccination may be associated with T1D. For example, incidence of T1D in Australian children younger than 5 years declined after rotavirus vaccine introduction.3 However, 2 Finnish studies4,5 showed no association of rotavirus vaccination with T1D risk in children 10 years and younger, although statistical power in these studies was limited. We compared T1D risk by rotavirus vaccination status among US children with commercial insurance.
