President Klaus has signed into law a bill which will formally end compulsory vaccination of children against tuberculosis, something that doctors have already started doing in practice. Child specialists have long advocated a change of law saying that the possible complications linked to the given vaccination far outweigh the risks of contracting the disease in present-day Europe. Vaccination will be recommended to parents of children in high-risk groups who travel to countries where tuberculosis is still a problem or those who have a family history of TB.
