Some people who have received the vaccine for the H1N1 “swine flu” virus have developed a potentially fatal muscle disorder called Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) and other serious side effects.

Since the vaccine was unveiled in October, federal health officials say there have been six confirmed cases of GBS in patients following the shots. Officials are still working to confirm a link between the disease and the vaccine.

GBS results in a patient’s immune system attacking the nerves, which can cause muscle weakness, paralysis, and even death. The disease also has been reported in some girls and young women given the vaccine Gardasil to guard against common causes of cervical cancer.
