The World Health Organisation (WHO) announced on Tuesday that Sweden is one of twelve countries that has reported cases of narcolepsy after the swine flu vaccine was administered.

Sweden reported 60 cases of narcolepsy after people were vaccinated with Pandemrix, manufactured by pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline. Many of the cases involved children.

Narcolepsy is a rare sleep disorder that causes a person to fall asleep suddenly and unexpectedly. According to the WHO, the rates reported in Sweden, Finland and Iceland were notably higher than those in other countries.

Since August 2010, at least 12 countries have reported cases of narcolepsy, particularly among children and adolescents, after receiving a swine flu, or H1N1, vaccine.
