Australia and Ivermectin
Firstly, there are a number of significant public health risks associated with taking ivermectin in an attempt to prevent COVID-19 infection rather than getting vaccinated. Individuals who believe that they are protected from infection by taking ivermectin may choose not to get tested or to seek medical care if they experience symptoms. Doing so has the potential to spread the risk of COVID-19 infection throughout the community.
“Individuals who believe that they are protected from infection by taking ivermectin” – are they correct in believing the protection from Ivermectin?
“may choose not to get tested or to seek medical care if they experience symptoms” – wouldn’t vaccinated people choose the same because they feel they are protected?
“in an attempt to prevent COVID-19 infection rather than getting vaccinated” – ohhh so that’s why!
Secondly, the doses of ivermectin that are being advocated for use in unreliable social media posts and other sources for COVID-19 are significantly higher than those approved and found safe for scabies or parasite treatment. These higher doses can be associated with serious adverse effects, including severe nausea, vomiting, dizziness, neurological effects such as dizziness, seizures and coma.
I’m pretty sure the doctors who are prescribing Ivermectin writes the dosage on the prescription?
Finally, there has been a 3-4-fold increased dispensing of ivermectin prescriptions in recent months, leading to national and local shortages for those who need the medicine for scabies and parasite infections. It is believed that this is due to recent prescribing and dispensing for unapproved uses, such as COVID-19. Such shortages can disproportionately impact vulnerable people, including those in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
LOL stop doing it we’re running out of it!
Hi I live in Sydney , and Australia is going down a very stupid road. Banning Ivermectin from off-label prescription and you cant even get a serology test easily to see if you got antibodies or not. All that they say is about the miracles of the vaccines and that 90% of the people should get vaxxed.
But bit by bit the issues of the vaccines are being unearthed. The news articles below comes from a news outlet that is very pro-vaxxed. But even the fact that they are starting to mention these issues it means that the issues are becoming indeniable.
