Methods: Eighty samples were screened for the presence of RVA. Positive samples were molecularly analyzed. Results: RVA positivity was 16.9%, with a predominance of G2P [4]. Periods: pre-vaccination: predominance of IId (G1), IId (G2) lineages, and I1 and E1 genotypes; post-vaccination: predominance of Ib (G1), IIa, and IIc (G2) l…
