Narcolepsy UK supporting Irish Pandemrix® victims

26th July 2019

Following an approach by the Irish litigation law firm, Michael Boylan, acting for c.80 adults & children affected by Narcolepsy arising from the administration of the Swine Flu vaccine Pandemrix® between October 2009 and the end of March 2010, our Chair Matt O’Neill will be supporting them in their pursuit of recognition of damages caused and their claim for compensation. Pandemrix® was manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline.

This follows assistance provided to those similarly affected in the UK and their legal teams, including evidence provided in court as part of the first successful claim under the Vaccine Damage Payment Act 1979. On behalf of Narcolepsy UK, he has also represented those affected with narcolepsy due to the Pandemrix® vaccine in discussions with the European Commission, working alongside representatives from other European countries.
