Was it worth it?

 

Dr Goran Stiernstedt, director for health and social care at the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions, who helped coordinate the vaccination program:

 

"The big question is was it worth it? And retrospectively I have to say it was not"

 

 

Quote:

While estimates vary, Stiernstedt says Sweden's mass vaccination saved between 30 and 60 people from swine flu death. Yet since the pandemic ended, more than 200 cases of narcolepsy have been reported in Sweden.

With hindsight, this risk-benefit balance is unacceptable. "This is a medical tragedy," he said. "Hundreds of young people have had their lives almost destroyed."
