July 30, 2009 - 11:00 PM | by: David Lewkowict

Scientists from eight medical research institutions will begin a series of five trials on the H1N1 Sweine flu vaccine in August. Government officials tell FOX News that they anticipate analyzing the results of the human trials very quickly and to have a vaccine in early October.

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention panel deliberated various proposals on who should receive the vaccine first and determined that five groups totaling 159 million Americans will head to the front of the lines. The group includes: pregnant women; children aged 6 months to 24 years; healthcare and medical service providers; those who care for children under 6 months of age; adults 19-64 with risk factors.

The eight sites include:
Baylor College of Medicine, Houston
Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati
Emory University, Atlanta
Group Health Cooperative, Seattle
Saint Louis University, St. Louis
University of Iowa, Iowa City
University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore
Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn.
