Six years ago, Josh Hadfield, 10, from Frome in Somerset, began experiencing symptoms of Narcolepsy. He was eventually diagnosed with the illness which forever altered his life. He was another victim of the Pandemrix vaccine which turned out to be the worst part of having Swine Flu (ironically enough). Josh’s claim was initially denied causing an uproar from parents worldwide. The Vaccine Damage Payments Scheme is supposed to pay all victims £120k, but that’s based on severity and unfortunately, Josh was deemed “not severe enough” by the institution. Josh also suffers from Cataplexy which affects his use of muscles.
According to BBC.com, Josh’s mother, Caroline Hadfield, is happy regarding the decision but remains frustrated by the long process it took to reach it.
As usual, the sum of awarded money is never enough to make up for a life altered forever. Josh’s case is another example, both overseas and domestically, of ridiculous and unsavory behavior exhibited by the powers that be presiding over these cases, often making parents and children wait years on end for any awards. The pharmaceutical industry, all the while, sitting out of harms way under the umbrella of protection and immunity.
While we are clearly happy for Josh, it is difficult to celebrate something which could have been prevented. This is yet another classic example where the vaccine is more dangerous than the actual illness it touts to protect us all from.
We wish Josh and his family all the best.
