Finnish medical journal Mediuutiset reported Friday that British drug maker GlaxoSmithKline was not liable to pay compensation for narcolepsy cases potentially caused by the Pandemrix influenza vaccine.

The National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) confirmed that GlaxoSmithKline had been contractually relieved from liability.

Mediuutiset added that other countries had signed similar agreements with vaccine makers.
