Ivermectin for Prophylaxis FOR KIDS
@Chris M or anyone else in medical:
Wondering if you would recommend usage for prophylaxis of Ivermectin for kids? I have a 7 year old and wonder if we (my family) should all dose up now given efficacy and pre-exposure message.
Has anyone administered this to a kid safely?

Probably the same as for adults: 150 mcg/kg. Go for a little less, or rather go for none as children are totally not affected by this virus because they haven’t had the chance to destroy their immune system yet. Give children vitamin D, not ivermectin.
I’m not in any medical field and I don’t have kids, but my instinct would be to NOT treat kids prophylactically.
1) it is very, very rare for kids to get a symptomatic case of covid. You can look this up, but it is extraordinarily rare.
2) If they get an asymptomatic case they probably will have natural immunity for a significant period of time, so an asymptomatic case for a kid could actually be considered a win. Immunity without having to take over priced and under tested vaccinations. https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/27/3/20-4543_article
3) If your kid does get symptoms you can treat them at that time.
This is just my opinion. Do your research and make up your own mind based on the evidence.
Agree with AnnieM.
I got HCQ and Ivm by prescription from a very forward thinking MD back in August. We talked about my 8 year old and the MD seemed in tone to agree with my feeling that I didn’t want to dose the kid unless I knew he had it.
I really only got HCQ and Ivm at the time out of high confidence that my kid would eventually bring it home from school to us. I agree with other sources that say a regular kid has something close to “immunity” to Covid 19.
I almost hope he gets exposed to it to be honest. Whether it is natural or came from a lab it is here now and he may as well get exposure while it does almost no harm.
Of course like all medical pronouncements from amateurs I might live to regret that idea. Im not purposely trying to expose him you understand, but back to the topic at hand, I wouldnt give him drugs outside a doctor’s supervision unless the situation seemed dire.
Fantastic guys!!! Great advice and that’s exactly what we’re
what we’re doing!
