  • they are 6 years (from the 6th birthday) to 16 years old (to the last day before the 16th birthday);
  • they are clinically healthy;
  • their legal representative - and if older than 8 years the volunteer - understands the nature of the study, agrees to its provisions and gives written informed consent;

  • they agree to employ adequate birth control measures for the duration of the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

Children will be excluded from participation in this study if they:

  • have a history of any previous TBE vaccination;
  • have a history of TBE infection or show evidence of a latent TBE infection (as demonstrated by screening ELISA > 126 VIEU/ml and / or neutralization test > 1:10);
  • have a history of allergic reactions, in particular to one of the components of the vaccine;
  • have received antipyretics within 4 hours prior to the first TBE vaccination;
  • suffer from a disease that cannot be effectively treated or stabilized;
  • suffer from a disease (e.g. autoimmune disease) or are undergoing a form of treatment that can be expected to influence immunological functions;
  • suffer from chronic, degenerative and / or inflammatory disease of the central nervous system;
  • are known to be HIV positive (a special HIV test is not required for the purpose of the study);
  • suffer from a febrile illness at study entry;
  • have a history of vaccination against yellow fever and / or Japanese B-encephalitis;
  • are participating simultaneously in another clinical trial.
