Brief Summary:
The objective of this study is to investigate the immunogenicity and safety of FSME-IMMUN 0.5 ml in two age strata (stratum A: 16 to 49 years, stratum B: > 50 years), with the first and second vaccinations being administered according to a rapid immunization schedule (12 ± 2 days apart). The third vaccination will be administered approximately 6 months after the first dose.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Immunogenicity: Seropositivity rate as determined by Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) and Neutralization test (NT) at Days 7, 14 and 21 after the second vaccination, in stratum A and B separately, and in the two age strata combined.

  • Have a history of TBE infection;
  • Have a history of infection with or vaccination against other flaviviruses (e.g. dengue fever, yellow fever, Japanese B-encephalitis);
  • Have a history of allergic reactions, in particular to one of the components of the vaccine;
  • Suffer from a disease (e.g. autoimmune disease) or are undergoing a form of treatment (e.g. systemic corticosteroids) that can be expected to influence immunological functions;
  • Have a known or suspected problem with drug or alcohol abuse (> 4 liters wine / week or equivalent level of other alcoholic beverages);
  • Have donated blood or plasma within 30 days of study entry;
  • Have received a blood transfusion or immunoglobulins within 30 days of study entry;
