Julian Calls on Government to Resolve Vaccine Damage Payment Issue

March 8, 2017

Today in a debate in Parliament Julian pushed the Government to draw a line under the vaccine damage payment issue in relation to pandemrix.

Pandemrix was widely used during the swine flu pandemic after being rushed into circulation without full clinical trials. This risk was acknowledged as an indemnity was agreed between the Government and the drug manufacturer prior to its use.

Unfortunately a number of children vaccinated with pandemrix developed narcolepsy and cataplexy. One of these victims was Julian’s constituent Ben Foy, who was vaccinated on the advice of the NHS in 2010.

In the debate Julian said that he has raised Ben’s case in Parliament in 2014, 2015, 2016 and now in 2017, and called on the Government to resolve this matter quickly and ensure that people like Ben get the vaccine damage payments they are owed.

Following the debate Julian said, “The Government has a clear moral obligation to draw a line under pandemrix debacle and give the victims of this drug the payments they deserve under the Vaccine Damage Payments Act. So far the process has been dragged out by unsuccessful Government appeal after appeal, and I will continue to lobby the Government until this matter is resolved once and for all.”
