It also would depend if the child fights them or is ok taking them.
I have a dcb that is 3 and he has asthma and they have brought his nebulizer here for me to do a treatment. Same thing, if he doesn't get it, he could be in much bigger trouble. It's the easiest thing to give it to him and it can help him from getting sicker. I just have them sign the medical form. Really no big deal. I also give antibiotics if they're past the contagious period.
