In the third column, "Children," the recommended treatment of acute Q fever for children aged <8 years with mild or uncomplicated illness, should read as follows: "Doxycycline 2.2 mg/kg per dose twice a day for 5 days (maximum 100 mg per dose). If patient remains febrile past 5 days of treatment: trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole 4–20 mg/kg/24 hours (dose based on trimethoprim component) in equally divided doses every 12 hours (maximum: 320 mg trimethoprim per 24 hours)"

In the footnote, the following sentence should be added at the end: "Trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole is contraindicated in children aged <2 months."
