A Government watchdog is concerned that the anti-swine flu drug can interact with the blood-thinning medication warfarin, which is taken by more than 600,000 people in the UK.

The combination can dangerously thin the blood, putting patients at risk of uncontrolled bleeding which can lead to a stroke.

Every day it seems there's a new risk associated with the swine flu vaccinations, and today is no exception. It seems that when taken by people on blood-thinnners, the shot can increase risk of stroke.

This preventative measure seems worse than the disease in the case, yet the various governments keep pushing it. Why might that be?
