Four Swedes are described by medical authorities as having a life-threatening condition following infection with the A/H1N1 swine flu.Three are being cared for at Karolinska University Hospital in Solna and a fourth has been sent to Åhus in Denmark for treatment.

Two of the critically ill patients are from the Stockholm region, one is from Östergötland, while the fourth is from Gästrikland.

All are described as being under 30-years-old, senior physician Stefan Engkvist told the TT news agency.Two of the patients at Karolinska are being cared for at the ECMO unit and the third has also been put on an artificial lung apparatus but is being kept in a separate intensive care unit.

"There is nothing out of the ordinary with their condition," Stefan Engkvist said but added:

"I mean. They have no lung function. That is very serious. But as soon as they receive treatment the condition is stabilized. You feel pretty good when you are on ECMO."

"We received the analysis confirms that the man of thirty years died last Friday had influenza H1N1," said the Akademiska Hospital in Uppsala, 80 km north of Stockholm, in a statement .

The victim, who exhibited flu-like symptoms, died at home Friday night near Uppsala. Further testing conducted by the Hospital were to determine whether or not was carrying the H1N1 virus.

Several patients with influenza H1N1 is currently in a serious condition in Sweden, where more than 900 people have contracted the virus since the beginning of the pandemic. But no deaths had been registered so far.

Fatal H1N1 vaccine side effects

23.10.2009 - In Sweden, the vaccination against swine flu has already begun, with fatal consequences. As the magazine Expressen reported, 190 nurses suffered severe adverse reactions following vaccination against swine flu. In Sweden Pandemrix is used with Adjuvancts. The same is planned in Germany starting next Monday. Up to now over 1,000 Swedes have been vaccinated against swine flu and the Institute for Infectious Diseases is flooded with reports of side effects.
"My whole body shook. It was so strong I could not even hold a glass of water in my hand," said Lotta Lindström. Rebecka Andersson was the first person who was vaccinated in Sweden. After the vaccination she had a fever and felt ill in the stomach: "I lost all my strength." Another nurse, Jennaly could barely walk five meters after she got sick from the vaccine. She was perfectly healthy before she was vaccinated, but the next day she had 39 degrees fever. "I could barely walk five feet to the bathroom. I know of at least 10 who got the fever, we have 80 people where I work."
On Oct. 20th there were only 30 people in the hospital because of severe vaccine reactions, the next day there were already 140, and only hours later 190.
Two deaths already occurred in response to the vaccine. This incident is now explained by officials with the words: "There has been found no direct connection with the injection. Annika Linde, director of the Swedish Institute for Infectious Diseases Control (SMI) said to the incidents: "The vaccine has more side effects than the normal flu vaccine. That is a sign that proves that there is effective protection."
The greatest medical scandal in the history of Sweden has begun. Germany may have it next week.

Here's another version - from a Finnish source -

Swine flu shots found to cause mild symptoms of disease
Surge in infections in Rovaaniemi

There are indications that the swine flu vaccines that will soon start being administered in Finland tend to cause more side-effects than the ordinary seasonal flu shots.
“The vaccine acquired by Finland causes aches and swelling at the point of injection for many”, says Ilkka Julkunen, a research professor at the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL).
In addition, the vaccine can also cause a light fever.

The reason for the side effects is in the effective ingredient, which is stronger than in ordinary flu vaccines. It’s purpose is to boost the body’s resistance to flu viruses.
“No serious harm has been described”, Julkunen emphasises. “About 20,000 doses of the vaccine acquired by Finland have been administered in tests.”
The testing took place in order to get permission to sell the product, and the side effects were known when the licence was granted. Julkunen says that the shot is worth taking in spite of the possible side effects, which are milder than the actual disease.

In the north of Sweden, health care personnel began receiving swine flu vaccines this week. The Finnish Broadcasting Company (YLE) reported that most of those who got the shot experienced mild symptoms. Sweden is using the same vaccine, which is being delivered to Finland.

Elisabet Eero, executive director of the health centre of Övertorneå on the Swedish side told YLE that 80 per cent of those vaccinated suffered symptoms typical of the swine flu, such as fever, headache, muscle pains, and a sore throat.
The symptoms emerged about five hours from receiving the injection. With some people the symptoms were so severe that they stayed at home.


Dozens of people in Finnish Lapland have come down with swine flu in the past couple of weeks. Only a few of the cases are serious, and one patient remains in intensive care in Rovaniemi.
“There are so many confirmed cases that we can now talk about an epidemic”, says Markku Broas, head physician of the unit of infectious diseases at the Lapland Central Hospital in Rovaniemi.

Further deaths linked to swine flu vaccine

Published: 24 Oct 09 08:52 CET
Online: http://www.thelocal.se/22846/20091024/

Health investigators are under more pressure as two elderly women are reported to have died, days after receiving the swine flu vaccine. It brings the total number of deaths linked to the vaccine in Sweden to four.
The two latest deaths were reported to the Swedish Medical Products Agency (Läkemedelsverket) on Friday.

A 74-year-old woman from Sollefteå in northern Sweden died four days after receiving the swine flu vaccine.

The woman, who suffered from heart and lung disease, was classified as a high-risk patient.

“Naturally a report will be undertaken,” said Dr. Markus Kallionen in a press statement released by Västernorrland County Council.

“We must take this case seriously and investigate what has happened.”

A further case of a 90-year-old woman who also died after receiving the vaccine has been reported by newspaper Expressen.

Läkemedelsverket are currently investigating circumstances surrounding the deaths of two high-risk patients, a 50-year-old man with a serious heart condition and woman with an acute muscle disease.

“It’s important to says that they had complicated illnesses,“ Gunilla Sjölin Forslund from Läkemedelsverket told news agency TT.

“We still do not know if the deaths are connected to the vaccine.”

Sweden launched a mass vaccination programme in a bid to control the flu pandemic on October 12th.

Cases of swine flu reached record levels last week with 198 new cases in comparison to 93 the previous week.

Swine flu kills Swedish politician

By Jens on Nov 3, 2009 in General, MBL, Politics, Sweden

Swine flu, the global pandemic that continues to cause wide-spread fears, has claimed a high profile Swedish politician–bringing the total confirmed number of swine-flu related deaths in Sweden to three.

Liberal Party politician, Jan-Erik Brohede, has died of swine flu-related illnesses, local newspaper Nerikes Allehanda has reported. The 48-year-old politician was found dead at his Orebro-home in central Sweden on Saturday, October 31, 2009.

Medical officials from the Orebro county health board told the newspaper that Brohedo – who belonged to a demographic considered as a high risk for contracting the H1N1 virus – was likely killed by medical conditions resulting directly from the deadly infection.

Nerikes Allehanda reports that the Orebro county health board is now urging everybody in indentified risk-groups to get themselves immediately vaccinated against swine flu. Risk groups include pregnant women, diabetics, patients with lung and heart conditions and children below the age of two.

Mats Bjoreman, Orebro country medical advisor told the newspaper that Brohede had several risk factors that could have lead to a fatal bout of influenza, stressing that the politician had not been in contact with health authorities; and had not been vaccinated.

There have been a total of 2,126 recorded cases of swine flu infections in Sweden so far, according to official statistics released by medical authorities.

Man Turned Away from Hospital Dies of Swine Flu
2009-11-06

A 49 year old man has died from Swine flu in Sweden. The man sought care at Jourcentralen in Stenungsund last Saturday. He wasn't admitted but was sent home with antibiotics and died two days later.

Test results on Friday confirmed that he had died from Swine flu. The man was not believed to be in one of the rsik groups.The local health department is now investigating.

"In hindsight it's obvious that the man should have been admitted. We will now look at the whole situation and see if there was anything that should have been done better, " said Monica Ericson-Sjöström, Chief doctor for Primärvården in South Bohuslän.

The man's death was the first in the West Götaland region.
