Medical experts in several Nordic countries allege they have found a possible connection between the influenza A H1N1 (Swine Flu) vaccine and narcolepsy.
The Norwegian Institute of Public Health confirms 23 Norwegians are currently affected by the chronic sleep disorder, 19 of whom are children. The 2010-11 flu season was marked by 25 cases of H1N1, though most were not diagnosed. Medical personnel were put on alert about a potential new wave of Swine Flu earlier this year, following reports of two suspected cases According to the authority, Pandemrix has prevented illness and deaths in Norway since it was introduced in 2009 amongst serious concerns for pregnant women. Nevertheless, six out of ten Norwegians said they did not want to be vaccinated at the time, despite calls by the Institute for people to exercise social responsibility. Many parents in Norway did not participate in the mass vaccination of children. The Institute issued information about possible side effects, and says today it “looks upon reports from Finland, Sweden, and Norway about a possible link between Pandemrix and narcolepsy in children as very serious.” Pandemrix was approved across Europe but the vaccine is no longer in use.
