How Are Major Drug Chains Implementing the Non-Prescription Ivermectin Law?
By Don Boys, Ph.D.
The Ivermectin haters are running for cover with recent study revelations; however, they will never admit culpability in the biggest medical and political con job in world history.
News reports of a massive study of Ivermectin’s incredible effectiveness saving the lives of COVID patients is sending the drug’s critics scurrying for cover. A study of 88,012 people “in a strictly controlled” program showed Ivermectin (when used as prevention) achieved up to “92 percent reduction in COVID-19 mortality rate.” It gets even better because “there were 0 COVID hospitalizations in the group of regular Ivermectin users compared to 10 in the irregular user group.”
While absorbing the above exhilarating study, we discovered this week that official mortality figures for Europe show “there has been a shocking 691% increase in excess deaths among children since the European Medicines Agency extended the emergency use authorisation of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine for use in children aged 12 to 15 in May 2021.”
Unprincipled officials have used their positions to manipulate free citizens into taking unsafe, unproven, and unneeded vaccines into their bodies. And even if you don’t believe they are so motivated, reasonable people will reject the forced vaccinations and national lockdowns.
Even the FDA and CDC have backed off their original Gestapo-like guidelines that proved to be unnecessary, unpopular, and unsuccessful. In the UK, “the effects of lockdown may now be killing more people than are dying of Covid, official statistics suggest.”
The abundant positive evidence in the treatment of COVID-19 with HCQ and Ivermectin is thrilling, truthful, and troubling. It’s troubling because many federal health officials (who never treated a COVID patient) refuse to permit the drugs’ use resulting in needless deaths.
To control people and to sell billions of dollars of worthless vaccines, officials refused to look at the science supporting HCQ and Ivermectin, which, when taken early, will almost always save a patient’s life. There is abundant evidence to support that statement. However, a concerted effort has made it impossible for average people to purchase those drugs.
Maybe that’s the problem: they are cheap. Follow the money, honey.
All COVID vaccines were approved under the Emergency Use Authorization that makes distribution of the vaccines legal without being submitted to rigorous, costly, and time-consuming testing. However, FDA approval is not permitted if there is “available and sufficiently effective treatment” already on the market. If Ivermectin and HCQ are effective, then the politicians in bed with Big Pharma would not be permitted to peddle their vaccines. So, HCQ and Ivermectin had to be ineffective.
Those who demand safe, cheap, and effective off label drugs have affected the most sensitive organ of the human anatomy—the wallet. If vaccines are unused, the Big Pharma cash register remains silent and when politicians snort, push, fight, and grunt at the public trough, they come up empty.
No informed conservative would say an American does not have the freedom to decide what medical treatment is acceptable, and no far leftist would say one does not own their own body and therefore has a natural right to choose. You know, “my body, my choice.” Or a child has a “right” to decide if he/she/it pees standing or sitting.
Likewise, I have the right to choose a cheap, safe drug to save my life instead of being killed by medical personnel in a hospital that is paid extra if I die “with COVID.” Hospitals are paid $5,000 for pneumonia but “if it’s COVID-19 pneumonia, then it’s $13,000, and if that COVID-19 pneumonia patient ends up on a ventilator, it goes up to $39,000.”
Say what! Now you know.
Some state legislators have introduced bills to make Ivermectin available in many states with Tennessee the only one to pass thus far. However, the big drug chains have chosen not to make the drug available per the Tennessee law. They are also part of the Big Pharma Mess.
If a cheap and readily available drug can relieve Covid-19 symptoms and shut down the multi-billion-dollar coronavirus vaccine industry, then the powers that be will use everything in their arsenal to stop it. And that’s exactly what they’re doing. They are denigrating, debunking, and discrediting Ivermectin as an animal dewormer because they are uninformed, mercenary, dishonest, and too busy stuffing their pockets with drug money from Big Pharma—the biggest, richest, most powerful lobby.
My research proves the Tennessee law is being circumvented by the major drug outlets, Walgreens, CVS, COSTCO, and Walmart. Ivermectin without a prescription is only available at some independent pharmacies. A Walgreens in Chattanooga refused to speak with me after learning of this article. Senator Frank Niceley who sponsored the bill sent me a list of Tennessee pharmacies that sell Ivermectin as per the new law. That list can be accessed here. I paid $9.00 per pill at an independent pharmacy when the price should be about half that, but that was my decision.
Senator Niceley gave me a lengthy interview and deserves our gratitude for his important effort to make this harmless but effective drug available over-the-counter. Representative Susan Lynn introduced a companion bill in the House. They were ably supported by Dr. Denise Sibley who testified ten times at Nashville hearings at great professional cost.
Dr. Sibley is a COVID expert having treated almost 5,000 COVID patients. Dr. Sibley told me she only had four patients die with COVID and all four had waited late in their disease before calling on her for help. By that time, the Angel of Death was standing at the foot of their bed. The protocols for HCQ and Ivermectin require treatment within a few days of exposure.
Other COVID physicians had similar results. The big difference with Dr. Sibley is she did not charge for the treatment! (No, not a typo.) I had heard that but could not believe it; however, Dr. Sibley confirmed that fact. She also gives her time and experience to the less fortunate on various mission fields.
I thought almost all the old-time, altruistic physicians disappeared with the horse and buggy.
I was shocked to discover that Walgreens, CVS, COSTCO, and Walmart are refusing to make the drug available without prescription. After informing a Chattanooga Walmart pharmacist Ivermectin was now sold over-the-counter, he said, “They told everyone but pharmacists.” CVS told us, “I can’t speak to the media.” This week a spokesperson for corporate CVS told me they had no comment. Corporate Walgreens told me, “No comment.” COSTCO corporate office told me they did not have a policy, leaving it to local stores to decide. I called the Memphis store, and a very helpful pharmacist told me they sold Ivermectin by prescription only.
Why is everyone so touchy about selling Ivermectin without prescription? Me thinks it is all political and economic. Moreover, if the drug chains refuse to sell over-the-counter in Tennessee, you can be sure that will be their policy in more than 28 states where similar bills are pending.
Citizens in other states that are considering making Ivermectin (and HCQ) over-the-counter should research whether opposing politicians are in bed with Big Pharma through campaign contributions that are public record.
For sure, the battle will be fierce, and truth will be difficult to find.
One unqualified, unfair, and untruthful newspaper critic wrote, “High doses [of Ivermectin] can be toxic. Most importantly, there is no sound scientific evidence to suggest that it can help treat COVID-19.” Such specious arguments will only convince the flat earthers, Elvis Observers, and those who cruise around in flying saucers from time to time. The statement, “High doses can be toxic” is a nonsense criticism. He doesn’t know that aspirin kills 3,000 people each year! The title of an article in The Telegraph revealed the shocking news, “Daily aspirin behind more than 3,000 deaths a year.” I wonder if the Ivermectin critics will attack aspirin. After all, no one says Ivermectin killed that many people in decades after 4 billion doses were taken.
The Atlantic headed an article revealing, “150 Americans Die Each Year from Tylenol’s Most Active Ingredient.” No one suggests Ivermectin has killed that many people, yet anyone can purchase Tylenol at any drug store without a prescription.
It gets embarrassing when the newspaper critic added, “there is no sound scientific evidence to suggest that it [Ivermectin] can help treat COVID-19.” The writer should have called in sick instead of pursuing his hitjob on Ivermectin.
While ridicule can be useful, it is wrong to use it to establish a lie. One use of Ivermectin is to deworm horses and cows, so the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) tweeted in response to the rise of Ivermectin use, saying: “You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it.” Some desperate people purchased Ivermectin from feed stores and had a reaction. Of course, any intelligent person would know there is a difference in a 1200 pound horse and a 200 pound man. The people I know who used the animal version, adjusted for body weight, and had no problems overcoming COVID.
An interesting article in the National Library of Medicine titled, “COVID-19: The Ivermectin African Enigma” supports the use of Ivermectin! It was obvious that many nations in Africa had “low frequency of cases and deaths from the SARS-CoV-2 COVID-19 virus.” They did a study comparing African nations that participated in “an intensive Ivermectin mass campaign” to control river blindness with those nations that did not. The conclusion: The incidence in COVID death rates and number of cases is significantly lower among the participating countries compared to non-participating nations.
So, while Ivermectin was taken to prevent river blindness, it also successfully reduced deaths from COVID. For a person gasping for breath, dying with COVID, he doesn’t need a double-blind study. Give him the Ivermectin. It is barbaric to not do so.
Dr. Haruo Ozaki, Chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association recommends Ivermectin for use with COVID patients. He noted that those parts of Africa that use Ivermectin to control parasites “have a COVID death rate of just 2.2 per 100,000 population, as compared to 13 times that death rate among African countries that do not use ivermectin.”
Many countries are now using Ivermectin against COVID-19; fifteen of them country-wide with official endorsement according to the British Ivermectin Recommendation Development (BIRD) panel, March 25, 2021. Yet, US health officials ridicule Ivermectin as a “horse dewormer” while they seek to hawk their hastily produced experimental vaccines. Those vaccines have resulted in over 16,000 US deaths yet they are still being peddled by federal health officials and flaky politicians. Interestingly, in 1976, when 32 deaths were attributed to the swine flu vaccine, the US government halted the mass vaccination campaign. Note, that was only 32!
That was more than 50 years ago, and this is now. Corruption and incompetence have multiplied over the years and unsafe, unproven, and unnecessary vaccines are still being pushed on a thoughtless public for massive profits. Somebody needs to go to prison.
Interestingly, over 100 members of Congress with Covid 19 were treated with Ivermectin! The animal version of Ivermectin is used to eliminate pests so it is appropriately being widely used in Washington. Maybe this November’s election will prove again Ivermectin’s effectiveness.
I have always thought most of Congress needed deworming, but I never expected it to happen. It’s also interesting that they have no trouble getting the drug, and you and I must almost bully our way to the prescription counter to get it.
Liberty Council, involved in passing the Tennessee law, declared, “According to a June 2020 study published in the Antiviral Research Journal, a single dose of Ivermectin can kill 99.8 percent of the virus within 48 hours. A meta-analysis in the American Journal of Therapeutics showed the drug reduced infection by an average of 86 percent when used preventively.”
Sounds good to sensible people but medical fanatics at the FDA and the CDC require a double-blind placebo-controlled study, costing millions of dollars before dying people can purchase a safe and approved drug that everyone knows is very effective for other diseases. They tell us the astounding success of thousands of doctors who have cured thousands of COVID patients is anecdotal.
Hey, an older person with COVID doesn’t care about all the circumstances, controversy, or cost—just let him have any medicine if it has helped save other patients. After all, they will probably die without it and if the medical thugs have their way, they will die alone while their angry, saddened family watches them through glass doors as they pass into eternity.
It seems to me federal health officials must be dumb as a box of rocks, dishonest as a medieval snake oil salesman, and have a conscience like Ted Bundy.

Fact, Fraud or Faith?
by Don Boys, Ph.D.
Only an uninformed fanatic says that evolution or creation can be proved scientifically. Christians believe in creationism because we believe in the veracity of the Bible but we also have scientific evidence to support our position. In every debate I’ve had with evolutionary scientists, the arrogant, asinine accusation is made, “Well, evolution is scientific while creationism is religion.” Evolution is about as scientific as a voodoo rooster plucking ceremony in Haiti. Almost.
