The health minister, Dana Jurásková, says her ministry is not to blame for the fact that many Czechs have chosen not to get inoculated against swine flu.

Vaccinations against the H1N1 virus began last Monday but interest has been considerably lower than expected. Many doctors have said they themselves will not get inoculated.
