Czechs claiming compensation over Covid vaccination side effects

A number of people have claimed compensation from the Czech state over unwanted side effects from being vaccinated against Covid-19, the news website SeznamZpravy reported on Wednesday. Three of the people have demanded CZK 1 million, while the others are seeking smaller amounts.

The Ministry of Health has not paid out any compensation of this kind. It has denied four of the claims and is considering the remainder. Rejected applicants may take the matter to court but none have done so too date.
