Abstract Objective: To evaluate the coverage of oral Rotavirus vaccine in human infants between January 2006 and December 2009. Method: Documentary and descriptive study with quantitative approach. Data were collected through the records of the book mirrors the childhood immunization. The Ethics Committee in Research of SMS-RJ approved research on CAAE Nº 0015.0.314.000-10. Results: The highest rate of coverage was in 2006 (83,2%) compared to other years. In 2007 it was found that 125 (10,6%) of the book mirrors vaccination not included notes on the human rotavirus oral vaccine, only 120 (9,9%) children were the first dose in 2008, those who underwent the two doses between the years 2006 to 2009 totaled 3833 (80,6%). Conclusion: The challenge of ensuring 100% immunization coverage for the pediatric population requires everyone involved in this process an intersectoral commitment.
