Flu Shot Linked to Child Narcolepsy – Reuters ReportsChild Health Safety, 25 January 2013
Reuters reports that GlaxoSmithKline’s Pandemrix H1N1 swine flu vaccine has caused 800 cases of narcolepsy in children. Taking under-reporting into account, this could amount to between at least 5,600 cases or a figure around up to 40,000 in the countries concerned. Cases have been recorded in children from Sweden, Finland, Norway, Ireland and France. Narcolepsy is a serious condition which can debilitate a child for life. Sufferers can fall asleep on the spot any time without warning.
To gain an idea of the potential extent of this adverse reaction in children caused by this vaccine and to adjust for under-reporting it is necessary to multiply by up to 50 times. [Under-reporting in all drugs and not just vaccines is 98 in every 100 adverse reactions – hence multiply by 50: Spontaneous adverse drug reaction reporting vs event monitoring: a comparison: Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine Volume 84 June 1991 341.]

Note: This has been a big problem in Sweden with the Government in denial for some time. They only admitted there may be a connection between the flu shots and narcolepsy after the Finnish study and a group of parents went public with this to support their claims which the doctors, nurses and authorities in Sweden have up to then been denying. Also, not mentioned is the large number of adults who have developed narcolepsy after the flu shot. I have seen more than one in public places with their head down asleep or seen them nod out in the middle of doing something. I have also heard other accounts of young people with friends who fall asleep while at the Pub or visiting others. Let me just say, that in their circle of friends there is no one taking any flu shots anymore.
