Healthcare workers in Indiana and Tennessee will be among the first to get swine flu vaccines in the United States Monday, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.
Vaccination clinics are scheduled for Monday morning for staff at Le Bonheur Children's Medical Center in Memphis, Tennessee and Wishard Health Services in Indianapolis, the CDC said.
Last week, the center said the first doses of H1N1 swine flu vaccine would arrive Tuesday.
The first vaccines to administered will be AstraZeneca unit MedImmune's nasal spray.
The U.S. government has ordered about 250 million doses from five companies — Sanofi-Aventis, CSL Ltd MedImmune, Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline.
MedImmune had especially good production of the H1N1 vaccine and has been the first to make doses available.
The vaccines will trickle in at a rate of about 20 million doses a week, and officials are unsure how many Americans will actually get them.
