A global pandemic of swine flu broke out in 2009, leading the UK government to come t a conclusion of commissioning GSK to manufacture a vaccination to immunise the population from swine flu. This vaccine was named ‘Pandemrix’. Due to the rush for the immunisation to begin, and the panic amongst the government, pre market clinical testing of the vaccination was limited or even nonexistent before being used in the UK alongside Ireland, Sweden, Finland and many other European countries.

In 2010, there were increasing amounts of reports of children being diagnosed with narcolepsy, and finally, a connection was made that they had al received the vaccination Pandemrix.
Epidemiological studies were carried out around the world, showing that was a significant increase in the numbers of children with narcolepsy and a large number of them had received the Pandemrix vaccination. It was then established that those who took the Pandemrix vaccination were at an increased risk of developing narcolepsy.
If you are a sufferer of narcolepsy due to a Pandemrix vaccination, you may be able to make a claim for compensation. Contact one of our specialised solicitors to receive advice on making your claim for compensation. Making a claim for compensation regarding narcolepsy can go through one of two routes; making a claim against the DWP under the Vaccination Damage Payment Act 1979, or making a claim against GSK under the Consumer Protection Act 1987. One of our dedicated solicitors can advise you on which route may be the best option for your specific case.
