An Atlanta university is among the first to test a new vaccine for H1N1 virus.

Emory University is evaluating adult volunteers in clinical trials.

Researchers hope the results of the trial will help plan a pandemic flu vaccination program this fall.

Only five other medical programs are testing the vaccine.

Emory says a second study starting next week will test the vaccine on small children and young adults.
