There have been 27 reports of suspected narcolepsy in people across Europe vaccinated with Pandemrix, the H1N1 swine flu vaccine made by GlaxoSmithKline.
30 Million in Europe had been vaccinated with the same vaccine.
Experts say 25000 Britons have the problem but only 20% of them have been officially diagnosed with it. But the U.K. officials are saying no one has it from taking the vaccine.
Finland has stopped giving out the vaccine, due to 8 cases there. 10 are in Sweden, 6 in France and 1 in both Germany and Norway. But, how many more are there in reality and the people are not getting it "officially" diagnosed? Would You get something like that diagnosed and then NEVER be allowed to drive again?
From the article this is what a GlaxoSmithKline representative said:
A spokesman for GlaxoSmithKline said: "Information surrounding the reported cases remains limited at the current time. GSK is conducting its own investigation in an effort to gather as much additional data as possible regarding the observed cases and is working closely with the regulatory authorities, including the European Medicines Agency (EMA)
