The Czech Health Ministry has issued a statement urging Czechs to get their seasonal flu jab this year despite a scare over whether it might not do more harm than good. The ministry said that its recommendations remained unchanged in the face of a Canadian study which suggests that a seasonal flu jab could actually increase the risk of contracting swine flu. Leading experts in the field have questioned the reliability of the study which was based on the fact that a high number of people who contracted swine flu had been vaccinated against seasonal flu.
