Swine flu jab could have prevented sleep

Researchers at Papworth and Addenbrookes hospitals in Cambridgeshire have discovered that a swine flu jab which was given to hundreds of thousands of children carried an increased risk of developing the sleep disorder narcolepsy.

Working with the Health Protection Agency they found that one child in 55,000 given Pandermix developed the condition. The vaccine was used during the swine flu outbreak that began in 2009.
