800 Children Harmed By Vaccines (Pandemrix)

From the day they’re born, children are pumped full of vaccinations, often under false pretenses. The latest evidence against this practice involves a vaccine known as Pandemrix, which was used during 2009 and 2010 in Europe to vaccinate against the H1N1 strain of influenza.

The vaccine, created and distributed by GlaxoSmithKline, has left at least 800 children with narcolepsy, a condition that causes an individual to fall asleep without warning. This information became available during a study published in the Public Library of Science, which showed that cases of this disorder, as well as paralysis and night terrors, increased drastically in children less than 17 years of age directly following the administration of the vaccine. This information has been confirmed by numerous scientists and medical professionals, including Emmanuel Mignot, a leading expert on narcolepsy.

The reaction seems to be largely concentrated in Sweden, where at least 5 million individuals received the vaccine. Since the release of this information, the vaccine has ceased being used in people under the age of 20. Sadly, although not surprisingly, a GlaxoSmithKline subsidiary pleaded guilty to selling contaminated vaccines only a year later in 2011.

As with most of the medical and health damage done by vaccinations, it’s great that the vaccine is no longer used on children. However, it’s a little bit too late for those already affected, and left dealing with a life altering condition for the rest of their lives.
