Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Postvaccination Varicella Antibody Titer ≥ 5 Glycoprotein Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (gpELISA) Units/mL [ Time Frame: 6 weeks Postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Antibody Response to Varicella at 6 Weeks Postvaccination for Subjects Initially With Varicella Antibody Titer < 1.25 gpELISA units/mL at Baseline

  • Number of Participants With Postvaccination Measles Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) Antibody Titer ≥ 120 mIU/mL [ Time Frame: 6 weeks Postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Antibody Response to Measles at 6 Weeks Postvaccination for Subjects Initially Seronegative (a titer < 120 mIU/mL) to Measles at Baseline

  • Number of Participants With Postvaccination Mumps ELISA Antibody Titer ≥ 10 Ab Units/mL [ Time Frame: 6 weeks Postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Antibody Response to Mumps at 6 Weeks Postvaccination for Subjects Initially Seronegative (a titer < 10 Ab units/mL) to Mumps at Baseline

  • Number of Participants With Postvaccination Rubella ELISA Antibody Titer ≥ 10 IU/mL [ Time Frame: 6 weeks Postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Antibody Response to Rubella at 6 Weeks Postvaccination for Subjects Initially Seronegative (a titer < 10 IU/mL) to Rubella at Baseline

  • Antibody Response to Varicella for Subjects Initially With Varicella Antibody Titer < 1.25 gpELISA Units/mL at Baseline - Geometric Mean Titer [ Time Frame: 6 weeks Postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Postvaccination observed Geometric Mean Titer of antibody to Varicella

  • Antibody Response to Measles for Subjects Initially Seronegative (a Titer < 120 mIU/mL) to Measles at Baseline - Geometric Mean Titer [ Time Frame: 6 weeks Postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Postvaccination observed Geometric Mean Titer of antibody to Measles.

  • Antibody Response to Mumps for Subjects Initially Seronegative (a Titer < 10 Ab Units/mL) to Mumps at Baseline - Geometric Mean Titer [ Time Frame: 6 weeks Postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Postvaccination observed Geometric Mean Titer of antibody to Mumps.

  • Antibody Response to Rubella for Subjects Initially Seronegative (a Titer < 10 IU/mL) to Rubella at Baseline - Geometric Mean Titer [ Time Frame: 6 weeks Postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Postvaccination observed Geometric Mean Titer of antibody to Rubella

  • Number of Participants With Serious Vaccine-related CAEs [ Time Frame: 6 weeks Postvaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Subjects with a serious vaccine-related CAE (an AE which is assessed by an investigator/qualified physician as being related to study vaccine and results in death, persistent or significant disability/incapacity, prolongs an existing inpatient hospitalization, is life-threatening, a congenital anomaly/birth defect, a cancer, or an overdose).
