Biological: Diphteria, tetanus, whole-cell pertussis, hepatitis B & Hib
All subjects were previously primed with one of the two formulations of the combined DTPw-HBV/Hib vaccine. At the age of 10 months, 50% of each group received a plain PRP challenge to assess the immune memory to PRP. In this booster study in the second year of life, all subjects who received DTPw-HBV/Hib and plain PRP will receive DTPw-HBV as a booster vaccination. All other subjects will receive as booster the same vaccine they received in the primary vaccination study.
