Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Subjects Reporting Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: From Dose 1 up to Day 30 after Dose 3 (from study Month 0 up to study Month 5) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    SAEs assessed include medical occurrences that results in death, are life threatening, require hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization, results in disability/incapacity or are a congenital anomaly/birth defect in the offspring of a study subjects.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting New Onset of Chronic Illnesses (NOCIs) [ Time Frame: From Dose 1 up to Day 30 after Dose 3 (from study Month 0 up to study Month 5) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    NOCIs include autoimmune disorders, asthma, type I diabetes, allergies.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Rash [ Time Frame: From Dose 1 up to Day 30 after Dose 3 (from study Month 0 up to study Month 5) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Rash assessed was hives, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, petechiae.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Adverse Events Resulting in Emergency Room (ER) [ Time Frame: From Dose 1 up to Day 30 after Dose 3 (from study Month 0 up to study Month 5) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of Subjects With Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: From Dose 1 through but excluding the fourth dose (from study Month 0 up to the booster vaccination at 12-15 months of age) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    SAEs assessed include medical occurrences that results in death, are life threatening, require hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization, results in disability/incapacity or are a congenital anomaly/birth defect in the offspring of a study subjects.

  • Number of Subjects With New Onset of Chronic Illnesses (NOCIs) [ Time Frame: From Dose 1 through but excluding the fourth dose (from study Month 0 up to the booster vaccination at 12-15 months of age) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    NOCIs include autoimmune disorders, asthma, type I diabetes, allergies.

  • Number of Subjects With Rash [ Time Frame: From Dose 1 through but excluding the fourth dose (from study Month 0 up to the booster vaccination at 12-15 months of age) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Rash assessed was hives, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, petechiae

  • Number of Subjects With Adverse Events Resulting in Emergency Room (ER) [ Time Frame: From Dose 1 through but excluding the fourth dose (from study Month 0 up to the booster vaccination at 12-15 months of age) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
