(NaturalNews) The family of a 15-year-old Australian girl is seeking answers after their daughter developed a severe sleeping disorder following vaccination with Pandemrix, the infamous "swine flu" shot pushed during the 2009 "pandemic." Australia's News.com.au reports that Chloe Glasson now falls asleep suddenly and without warning as many as 30 times a day, regardless of what she is doing, the result of a narcoleptic condition that emerged almost immediately after she was jabbed.
One of at least 100 people to develop narcolepsy following vaccination with Pandemrix, young Chloe recently disappeared for several hours while on a short walk to her grandmother's house. She reportedly went into a state of "dreamlike autopilot," during which time she wandered around aimlessly before eventually arriving home safely. But this was not before her frightened parents contacted authorities about their missing child.
"[Our daughter's life] has been devastated after we followed government advice to have her immunized against the threat of swine flu," explained Chloe's mother, Rebecca, to News.com.au. "She has gone from being a bright, outgoing girl to one who cannot go out on her own. She doesn't doze for more than a couple of hours at a time, but she can have disturbing dreams."
Chloe also has trouble focusing and staying awake in school. Her parents say she often fades off right in the middle of class, a frequent occurrence that is stunting her ability to learn and keep up with her peers. Chloe's best hope, her parents say, is treatment with a drug known as sodium oxybate, which costs $23,000 per year.
"I am putting a lot of faith in the treatment," stated Chloe to the U.K.'s Daily Mail. "While the tablets won't cure me, they may offer the chance of a more normal life."
Chloe is currently receiving treatment at the U.K.'s Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh. Her parents are also hoping to receive the maximum compensation from the U.K. government for damages caused by Pandemrix, which was manufactured by U.K.-based GlaxoSmithKline. This amount would be the U.S. equivalent of $220,000.
"We believe that more than 100 people have developed narcolepsy because of the swine flu vaccine," stated Matt O'Neill from Narcolepsy U.K., a British charity.
Thousands of children likely damaged by swine flu vaccine fraud
Data released by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) not long after the widespread distribution of Pandemrix, however, reveals the number of affected children to be far higher. As we reported earlier this year, an EMA report found that at least 800 children developed narcolepsy following vaccination with Pandemrix.
Similarly, data compiled by the Helsinki Sleep Clinic in Finland revealed that Pandemrix was associated with an astounding 1,700 percent increase in narcolepsy among children and teenagers under the age of 17. At 5.3 children per 100,000 affected by the vaccine, based on the figures, potentially thousands of children across Europe now have sleeping disorders as a result of being jabbed with Pandemrix.
"The increased risk of narcolepsy after vaccination with ASO3 adjuvanted pandemic A/H1N1 2009 vaccine indicates a causal association, consistent with findings from Finland," reads the conclusion of a study on Pandemrix and sleep disorders that was published in the British Medical Journal earlier this year.
As for Chloe and the hundreds of other children damaged by Pandemrix, the fact that narcolepsy is a nerve damage-related disease further illustrates the neurotoxic effects of vaccines -- effects that, despite being denied by health authorities as even existing, are very real to those who end up suffering from them.
