Four families have been told they can apply for government compensation over side-effects of the Pandemrix swine flu vaccine.
Studies have shown the jab increased the risk of narcolepsy tenfold.
Families could be entitled to Â£120,000 through the Vaccine Damage Payments Scheme if they can prove “severe” disability.
If the bid fails they and other families could still pursue compensation through the courts.
