Pandemrix vaccine and narcolepsy/cataplexy,

We're waiting for Angus Files to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 could you please supply the following information.
How many vaccine damage claims lodged with the VDPU in respect of the Pandemrix vaccine and narcolepsy/cataplexy, said to be in the region of 60 -70 persons, (1) have received an award since the DWP lost their appeal at the Court of Appeal in February 2017 in respect of “John” who received the Pandemrix vaccine and subsequently suffered from narcolepsy.

(1) https://www.hja.net/press-releases/dwps-...
"There are currently pending in the UK about 60-70 cases similar to John’s, where narcolepsy was caused by the 2009 pandemic swine flu vaccine, but where compensation was refused by the DWP. There are also a number of other cases from other vaccines."

Yours faithfully,

Angus Files
