- Number of Participants With Serious Adverse Events (SAE) [ Time Frame: Up to 182 days postvaccination ]A serious adverse event is defined as any adverse event that results in death, is life threatening, results in a persistent or significant disability/incapacity, results in hospitalization or prolongs an existing hospitalization, is a congenital anomaly/birth defect, is a cancer, is an overdose, or is considered an "other important medical event" based on medical judgement.
- Geometric Mean Titer (GMT) of Varicella-Zoster Virus (VZV) Antibodies at 42 Days Postvaccination [ Time Frame: 42 days postvaccination ]The Geometric Mean Titer (GMT) of VZV antibodies in participants' serum samples was assessed by a glycoprotein enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (gpELISA).
- Geometric Mean Fold Rise (GMFR) of the VZV Antibody Response From Day 1 to Day 42 Postvaccination. [ Time Frame: 42 days postvaccination ]The geometric mean fold rise (GMFR) of the VZV antibodies from Day 1 to Week 6 postvaccination.
