A swine flu vaccine might be on the horizon.

The Boston biotechnology firm Replikins says it's developed a swine flu vaccine that can be made 100 times faster than current flu vaccines.

It still needs the approval of federal regulators.

This comes as Massachusetts has confirmed 8 more cases of the H1N1 virus, bringing the total number to 115 cases in the state.

All the patients are expected to recover.
