Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety of CSL Influenza Virus Vaccine in a Paediatric population through the assessment of the frequency of Local and general solicited symptoms, Unsolicited Adverse Events (UAE),Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Local & general solicited symptoms for 7 days post each vaccination, UAEs for 30 days post each vaccination, SAEs for 6 months after the last primary vaccination and 6 months after the booster vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate immunogenicity response to CSL Influenza Virus Vaccine in Paediatric population according to the criteria of the CPMP/BWP/214/96 Note for Guidance on Harmonisation of Requirements for Influenza Vaccines [ Time Frame: 30 days after each vaccine dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 298
Study Start Date: March 2005
Primary Completion Date: June 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Be healthy male or female children, aged = or > 6 months to < 9 years at the time of first study vaccination; Note: = or > 6 refers to 6 calendar months

  3. Be able to provide a pre-vaccination sample of up to 5mL of venous blood without undue distress/discomfort and
  4. Be born after a normal gestation period (between 36 and 42 weeks).

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Known allergy to eggs, chicken feathers, neomycin, polymyxin, or any components of the vaccine;
  2. Previous influenza vaccination;
