Vaccine Injury Compensation for a child with narcolepsy caused by seasonal flu vaccine

We are pleased to be able to report the successful outcome of the first case of its kind, an English appeal tribunal has now found that a child’s narcolepsy was likely caused by the seasonal flu vaccine and consequently found that a vaccine injury compensation payment under the Vaccine Damage Payment Act 1979 is due to the child in question.
