I suggested it earlier, and now we know: Adults also got narcolepsy/ YLE

You read it here 3 days ago.  Just because Pandemrix caused a 700%-1300% increase in narcolepsy cases in children did not mean that cases of the vaccine-induced illness were confined to children.  And now we see they were not.  Grownups also get it.  And what else was caused by Pandemrix that did not shout out to be discovered?

But don't expect the ASO3 adjuvant to disappear any time soon.  Glaxo paid a very pretty penny for it.

From Finland's YLE.
Five young adults who developed narcolepsy after receiving the swine flu vaccine Pandemrix are suing the state for damages at Helsinki District Court.

The 20–26 year-old plaintiffs were not awarded damages earlier as studies have so far only confirmed that the Pandemrix vaccine increased the risk of narcolepsy among 4–19 year-olds. 
Around a dozen adults [in Finland alone--Nass] are suspected of coming down with narcolepsy since taking the vaccine. The National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) is currently investigating the H1N1 vaccine link to narcolepsy in adults. According to the organisation, some 50 new narcolepsy cases were diagnosed in Finland between 2009 and 2011.  
In 2009, swine flu jabs were offered to all Finnish residents free of charge in anticipation of an H1N1 influenza epidemic. 
The regional daily Aamulehti was the first to report the news.
