 Sep 20, 2012 (CIDRAP News) – The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) today confirmed a link between narcolepsy and pandemic 2009 H1N1 vaccination in children in Finland and Sweden, the two countries that originally reported a problem with the vaccine.
 They found that new cases of narcolepsy reported after the pandemic vaccine launched in the fall of 2009 increased significantly in Sweden and Finland compared with other countries. They found no increased incidence in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Italy, though they noted that vaccine uptake in children ages 5 to 19 was low in those countries.
