Flu Vaccine Linked to Seizures in Kids Under Five

The rate of convulsions caused by high fever among children in Australia given a seasonal flu shot has been ten times higher than normal.  Up to one in 100 children given the injection, made by CSL and marketed in some countries by Pfizer, suffered febrile convulsions in the following hours and days.

It is not known what is causing the problem. Adults given the vaccine do not appear to have been affected.

The Telegraph reports:

"In Australia, which is in its winter, stopped vaccinating all children under five when the increased rate of convulsions was found."
