Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants Reporting Solicited Local and Systemic Reactions After Fluzone® Vaccination [ Time Frame: Day 0 to 3 post-vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Solicited local reactions: Erythema (redness), induration, bruising and pain at the injection site. Solicited systemic reactions: Fever (temperature), irritability, crying, lethargy, appetite decreased, diarrhea, vomiting and rash.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Pre- and Post-Vaccination Reciprocal Hemagglutination Inhibition Titers ≥ 40 (Seroprotection) [ Time Frame: Day 0 and Day 14 after Dose 2 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Seroprotection defined as percentage of participants with reciprocal hemagglutination inhibition titers ≥40 pre- and post-vaccination.

  • Percentage of Participants With at Least a 4-fold Rise in Reciprocal Hemagglutination Inhibition Titers (Seroconversion) [ Time Frame: Day 0 and Day 14 Post-dose 2 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Seroconversion defined as the percentage of participants with ≥ 4-fold increases in reciprocal hemagglutination inhibition titer from pre- to post-vaccination.
