The overall aim of the study is to corroborate that a schedule consisting of 3 doses of Pentacel™ and a 4th dose of DAPTACEL® and ActHIB® or 4 doses of Pentacel™ or 4 doses of Quadracel and ActHIB® is as safe and immunogenic as a standard of care schedule based on 3 doses of the licensed-equivalent vaccines DAPTACEL®, Vero cell derived Inactivated Poliovirus vaccine (IPOL®), and ActHIB® and a 4th dose of DAPTACEL® and ActHIB®.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participant Responding to Pertussis Antigens Post-Dose 3 of Pentacel® or DAPTACEL®, IPOL®, and ActHIB® Vaccinations. [ Time Frame: 30 Days post-dose 3 vaccination ]
    Vaccine response was calculated as a pre-dose 1 titer ≤ Lower Limit of Quantitation (LLOQ) and post-dose 3 titer > LLOQ; or a pre-dose 1 titer > LLOQ and post-dose 3 titer ≥ pre-dose 1 titer.

  • Percentage of Participants With a Four-fold Rise in Pertussis Antigens Post-Dose 3 of Pentacel® or DAPTACEL®, IPOL®, and ActHIB® Vaccinations (Seroconversion) [ Time Frame: 30 Days post-dose 3 vaccination ]
  • Geometric Mean Titers (GMTs) of Antibodies to Pentacel® or DAPTACEL®, IPOL®, and ActHIB® Antigens Post-dose 3 Vaccinations. [ Time Frame: 30 Days post-dose 3 vaccination. ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants Reporting at Least One Solicited Injection Site or Systemic Reactions Post-vaccination 3 [ Time Frame: 7 days post-vaccination 3 ]
    Solicited injection site reactions: Tenderness, Redness, and Swelling. Solicited systemic reactions: Fever (body temperature), Vomiting, Abnormal crying, Lethargy, Appetite decreased, Irritability, and Rash.

Ages Eligible for Study:   42 Days to 89 Days   (Child)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Aged ≥ 42 days and ≤ 89 days on the day of inclusion
  • Born at full term of pregnancy (≥ 36 weeks)
  • Informed consent form signed by the parent(s) or other legally authorized representative(s) before the 1st study related procedure
  • Vaccination with a hepatitis B vaccine at least 30 days before inclusion
  • Able to attend all scheduled visits and to comply with all trial procedures(i.e., access to a phone)
  • Provide blood sample prior to Dose 1
  • Parent or legal representative willing to take rectal temperatures after each vaccination.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Participation in another clinical trial in the 4 weeks preceding the (first)trial vaccination
  • Planned participation in another clinical trial during the present trial period
  • Personal or immediate family history of congenital or acquired immunodeficiency, immunosuppressive therapy such as long-term systemic corticosteroids therapy
  • Known or suspected systemic hypersensitivity to any of the vaccine components or history of a life-threatening reaction to a vaccine containing the same substances as the trial vaccine(s)
  • Chronic illness that could interfere with trial conduct or completion
  • Received blood or blood-derived products since birth
  • Any vaccination in the 2 weeks preceding the first trial vaccination or planned in the 4 weeks after any trial vaccination. Flu vaccine could be administered only 2 weeks after any trial vaccination
