Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Geometric Mean Titers (GMTs) of Haemagglutination Inhibition (HI) Antibodies Against Fluviral Vaccine Strains. [ Time Frame: At Day 0 before vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Fluviral vaccine strains were A/California (H1N1), A/Victoria (H3N2) and B/Brisbane

  • Geometric Mean Titers (GMTs) of Haemagglutination Inhibition (HI) Antibodies Against Fluviral Vaccine Strains. [ Time Frame: At Day 21 after vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Fluviral vaccine strains were A/California (H1N1), A/Victoria (H3N2) and B/Brisbane

  • Number of Seroprotected Subjects for Antibodies Against Fluviral Vaccine Strains. [ Time Frame: At Day 0 before vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A Seroprotected subject was defined as a subject with a serum haemagglutination inhibition (HI) antibody titer greater than or equal to 1:40.

  • Number of Seroprotected Subjects for Antibodies Against Fluviral Vaccine Strains. [ Time Frame: At Day 21 after vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A Seroprotected subject was defined as a subject with a serum haemagglutination inhibition (HI) antibody titer greater than or equal to 1:40.

  • Number of Seroconverted Subjects for Antibodies Against Fluviral Vaccine Strains. [ Time Frame: At Day 21 after vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A subject seroconverted for haemagglutination inhibition (HI) antibodies was defined as a subject with either a prevaccination (Day 0) HI antibody titer below 1:10 and a post-vaccination titer greater than or equal to 1:40 or a prevaccination titer greater than or equal to 1:10 and at least a 4-fold increase in post-vaccination titer.

  • Seroconversion Factor for Antibodies Against Fluviral Vaccine Strains. [ Time Frame: At Day 21 after vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Seroconversion Factor (SCF) is defined as the fold increase in serum HI antibody GMTs post-vaccination (Day 21) compared to prevaccination (Day 0).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Subjects With Solicited Local and General Symptoms After Administration of Fluviral. [ Time Frame: During a 4-days (Day 0-3) follow-up period after vaccination. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Solicited local symptoms assessed were pain, redness and swelling at the injection site. Solicited general symptoms assessed were bronchospasm, chills, cough, fatigue, headache, joint pain at other location, muscle aches, red eyes, sore throat, swelling of the face and temperature (defined as orally temperature equal or above 38.0 degrees Celcius)

  • Number of Subjects With Any, Grade 3 and Related Unsolicited Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Within the 21-day post-vaccination period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Unsolicited adverse events (AE) covers any AE reported in addition to those solicited during the clinical study and any solicited symptoms with onset outside the specified period of follow-up for solicited symptoms.

    Any = occurrence of any adverse event regardless of intensity grade or relationship to vaccination.

    Grade 3 = an unsolicited AE that prevented normal everyday activity. Related = event assessed by the investigator as causally related to the vaccination.


  • Number of Subjects Reporting Unsolicited Adverse Events (AEs). [ Time Frame: Within the 21-day post-vaccination period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Unsolicited AE covers any AE reported in addition to those solicited during the clinical study and any solicited symptom with onset outside the specified period of follow-up for solicited symptoms.

  • Number of Subjects With Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: During the entire study period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    SAEs assessed include medical occurences that results in death, are life threatening, require hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization, result in disability/incapacity or are a congenital anomaly/birth defect in the offspring of a study subject.

  • Satisfactory baseline medical assessment by history and physical examination
  • Comprehension of the study requirements, ability to comprehend and comply with procedures for collection of safety data, expressed availability for the required study period, and ability and willingness to attend scheduled visits.
  • Female subjects of non-childbearing potential may be enrolled in the study.
  • Female subjects of childbearing potential may be enrolled in the study, if the subject:

All vaccines can be administered to persons with a minor illness such as diarrhea, mild upper respiratory infection with or without low-grade febrile illness, i.e. oral temperature <38.0°C.

    • Requiring institution of new medical or surgical treatment within one (1) month prior to study enrollment, or
    • Requiring the re-institution of a previously discontinued medication or medical treatment within one month prior to study enrollment, or
    • Requiring a change in medication dosage in the one month prior to study enrollment due to uncontrolled symptoms or drug toxicity (elective dosage adjustments in stable subjects are acceptable), or
    • Hospitalization or an event fulfilling the definition of a SAE within one month prior to study enrollment.
  • Any confirmed or suspected immunosuppressive condition including:

    • History of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection,
    • Cancer or treatment for cancer, within 3 years of study enrollment. Persons with a history of cancer who are disease-free without treatment for 3 years or more are eligible.

  • Complicated insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
  • Unstable cardiopulmonary disease requiring chronic medical therapy or associated with functional impairment.

  • Receipt of systemic glucocorticoids (prednisone >= 20 mg/day for more than 14 consecutive days) within 1 month of study enrollment, or any cytotoxic or immunosuppressive drugs within six months of study enrollment. Inhaled and topical steroids are allowed.
  • A history of any demyelinating disease including Multiple Sclerosis and Guillain-Barré syndrome.
  • Presence of an active neurological disorder.
  • History of chronic alcohol consumption and/or drug abuse.

  • Administration of immunoglobulins and/or any blood products within the three months preceding the administration of the study vaccine or planned during the study.
  • Any known or suspected allergy to any constituent of Fluviral (egg protein, thimerosal) and/or a history of anaphylactic type reaction to consumption of eggs, and/or reactions to products containing mercury (such as thimerosal).
  • A history of severe adverse reaction to a previous influenza vaccination.
  • Pregnant and/or lactating/nursing female.
  • Any condition which, in the opinion of the investigator, prevents the subject from participation in the study.
