"Today the European Commission granted variations to two existing authorisations for vaccines for influenza pandemic A(H1N1)," the European Union's executive body said in a statement.

The decision on the two vaccines -- Pandemrix and Focetria -- was pushed through last week by the European Medicines Agency amid mounting concern about the new winter influenza season and an upturn in British cases of swine flu.
