Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the vaccine safety by repeated physical examination and by recording all local and general signs/symptoms [ Time Frame: Throughout the study ]
  • Measurement of haematology/biochemical parameters on blood samples [ Time Frame: Throughout the study ]
  • Vaccine reactogenicity by soliciting of local and general signs/symptoms [ Time Frame: On the day of vaccination and the subsequent 7 days ]
  • Vaccine immunogenicity by 6 measurements of anti-HSV antibodies [ Time Frame: From day 0 to day 45 following vaccination ]
