The State Government has suspended its free flu vaccine program for WA children aged under five after 22 children became ill and were taken to Princess Margaret Hospital within hours of having their injections.

Health Minister Kim Hames said the otherwise fit and healthy children had suffered febrile convulsions – which involved a fit or seizure due to high fever – within 12 hours of having their vaccine.

The presentations at PMH were over the past month and it was still unclear if the vaccine was the cause, but at least one child was understood to have become seriously ill.

There have been no reports of other States reporting an unusually high number of side effects in children.

Dr Hames confirmed health authorities had closed the free vaccination program for young children as a precaution until tests could be carried out to see if the vaccine was responsible for the spike in reactions.
