Brief Summary:
There is evidence that aluminum phosphate (AlPO4) contained as an adjuvant in conjugate vaccines enhances the immune response in infants. There is no data so far evaluating whether this also applies to adults. The objective of this study is to compare the immune response of 2 different 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate (13vPnC) formulations with and without AlPO4 to select a formulation and to compare the immune response to the chosen 13vPnC formulation relative to the immune response to 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (23vPS).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Demonstrate 13vPnC without AlPO4 is as immunogenic as 13vPnC with AlPO4 to select a 13vPnC formulation.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Demonstrate that the selected 13vPnC formulation is as immunogenic as 23vPS (by IgG).
  2. Safety and tolerability of the selected 13vPnC formulation given 12 months after a previous dose of the selected 13vPnC.
