 EU Clears Two Vaccines to Fight Second Wave of Swine Flu Pandemic

The European Commission on Tuesday cleared for distribution in Europe two new vaccines to fight a swine flu pandemic, amid fears about a second wave of the potentially deadly virus.

"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.
