Yet another study confirms that the swine flu vaccine caused narcolepsy in childrenIreland is the latest country to confirm that the swine flu vaccine it encouraged its children to receive caused the serious disease narcolepsy in an unfortunate minority. Narcolepsy is an incurable sleep disorder that causes extreme daytime sleepiness, muscle weakness, sleep paralysis (a temporary inability to move when falling asleep or waking) and sometimes anxiety, depression or school difficulties. The Irish study found that children vaccinated with Pandemrix, the swine flu vaccine used widely throughout the UK, were 14 more times likely to suffer narcolepsy compared to an unvaccinated child. This means that one child in every 19,000 vaccinated children suffers narcolepsy as a direct result of vaccination. This suggests a greater risk than other studies found in Sweden or the UK. This is especially tragic as the vaccine should never have been given for a disease that turned out to be milder than normal flu.
