Narcolepsy Claims & Compensation Resulting From Pandemrix Swine Flu Vaccine
During the 2009/2010 Swine Flu (H1N1) pandemic in Europe, Pandemrix was widely used to vaccinate people including 900,000 people in Ireland. Following an increase in narcolepsy cases in children after receiving the Pandemrix vaccination, investigations were carried out by health agencies across Europe.
The Department of Health investigated the association between narcolepsy and Pandemrix and they found that there was a thirteen-fold increase in the risk of narcolepsy in vaccinated individuals compared with unvaccinated individuals. These results are similar to those in Sweden and Finland.

Narcolepsy vaccine injury in Ireland
Almost 50 people in Ireland and over 800 across Europe have been affected by narcolepsy, a life-long incurable disease, following the Pandemrix vaccination. The symptoms of narcolepsy include daytime sleepiness, hallucinations, sleep paralysis, weight increases and cataplexies which is a sudden loss of muscle tone ranging from slackness of facial muscles to total collapse.
