Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Geometric Mean Fold Rise (GMFR) From Baseline in Antibody Level [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) to Day 14 postvaccination ]
    Geometric mean fold rise is calculated as the natural logarithm of the ratio of Day 14 and baseline antibody titers.

  • Number of Participants With Vaccine-related Serious Adverse Experiences [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) to Day 84 postvaccination ]
    Vaccine-related adverse experiences are those determined by the investigator to be possibly, probably, or definitely vaccine-related.
