  Purpose

The aim of this study is to assess the effectiveness of GSK Biologicals' pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (GSK1024850A) in preventing invasive disease caused by S. pneumoniae or H. influenzae and in reducing occurrence of hospital-diagnosed pneumonia cases, tympanostomy tube placement and outpatient antimicrobial prescriptions in children starting vaccination below 18 months of age. These data will be collected from the national registers and will be analyzed in combination with data collected for subjects enrolled in a large scale cluster-randomized study 111442.

The study will also assess the immune response to the GSK1024850A vaccine and the impact of the vaccine on occurrence of acute otitis media, carriage, safety in children starting vaccination below 18 months of age.

  • Previous vaccination against Hepatitis B virus with any registered, non-registered or investigational vaccine, or planned use of such a vaccine other than the study vaccine during the study period.
  • Previous vaccination against Hepatitis A virus with any registered, non-registered or investigational vaccine, or planned use of such a vaccine other than the study vaccine during the study period.
