Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Severity and causality of all Adverse Events following the dose of vaccine/placebo [ Time Frame: upto 10 days following administration of vaccine/placebo ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The frequency, severity and causality of all solicited and unsolicited adverse events following administration of a single dose of the vaccine as compared to placebo


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The frequency and the percentage change, as compared to baseline, in the protocol defined laboratory parameters following the single dose of Vaccine/placebo [ Time Frame: Upto 10 days following administration of vaccine/placebo ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The frequency, percentage change, as compared to baseline, and causality of all the defined laboratory parameters following administration of a single dose of the vaccine as compared to placebo
