It looks like, developing a vaccine against the norovirus is in the works, but it's still in its early phase. Would you take the shot when it's deployed? I'd definitely do so, even though I've only got gastro like 2-3 times in my 30 years of life. I have a huge phobia of puking. But that's just me.

"Unfortunately, the development of an effective NoV vaccine has proven extremely difficult, and only in recent years, some preparations have been tested in humans in advanced clinical trials."

"Potential norovirus vaccines are in development, but currently, none are licensed for public use. Vaccine development costs can easily run $200 million to $500 million with no guarantees of success."

I would take the vaccine in a heartbeat. I had that virus a few years ago and it was horrible. I had nausea, vomiting and diarrhea for days. I wouldn’t want to go through that again.

NOPE, I can treat the occasional sickness without getting vaccinated.

I would take it no problem. It has traveled through our household twice and it was horrible.

I might consider it if I were planning a cruise.

Having Had Noro once before....yes, I would take it, but only after I researched it's safety profile!

This. Pending on the effectiveness and duarability of it.



I mean, if the vax is a lifetime thing.. I'd probably get it. If it's a year protection or something. I'd probably only get it if I was going to a higher risk area. A cruise.. Or.. A resort type place where lots of kids are present.. Great Wolf Lodge or something like that.


I tend to have a pretty cast iron stomach. Don't get a whole lot of stomach viruses.. I joke that they can't survive in me. I'll leave pizza sitting out 24 hours and pick it up and eat it cold. Eat tons of hot sauce and hot peppers (I grow Reapers).. Stomach viruses don't know what they're in for when they hit me.

While I don't tend to pick up the annual flus or intestinal bugs roaming the neighborhood, the vaccine might be something I'd get if I was planning international travel. Dealing with an inconvenient but self-limiting virus at home is one thing. Dealing with it while abroad would be another! Not being able to leave the room while on a carefully planned, expensive trip wouldn't be fun!

Hell yes! In a heart beat!



I have 2 friends who contracted Norovirus. When you start vomiting and crapping blood, you know that it is BAD!

Sure I would. Especially if I was going on a cruise or on vacations soon. Who wants to get violently sick if it can be avoided with something as simple as a shot? I get the flu shot every year. I got my shingrex, I got my covid shots already, and when I'm 65 I'll get the pnemonia vaccine. Norovirus vax? Bring it on.

We had a friend come down with the flu on our big 17 day cruise. He and his wife got sick on the 3rd day and they were miserable and confined to their cabin for 4 days. She got better, but he stayed sick for the entire cruise and our 4 days in Barcelona afterwards. He got off the ship only one time, and it tired him so badly that he just stayed aboard until the cruise was over. It was a total waste of money for him, and he would have been happier at home.
