  • Healthy subjects or subjects with well controlled chronic medical condition (at the discretion of the investigator).
  • Written informed consent obtained from the subject.
  • Access to a consistent means of telephone contact, which may be either in the home or at the workplace, land line or mobile, but NOT a pay phone or other multiple-user device.
  • Subjects who the investigator believes that they can and will comply with the requirements of the protocol should be enrolled in the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Chronic administration (defined as more than 14 days) of immunosuppressants or other immune-modifying drugs within six months prior to the first study vaccination.
  • Any confirmed or suspected immunosuppressive or immunodeficient condition, based on medical history and physical examination (no laboratory testing required).
  • History of chronic alcohol consumption and/or drug abuse.
  • History of hypersensitivity to vaccines.
  • History of any reaction or hypersensitivity likely to be exacerbated by any component of the vaccines.
  • Acute clinically significant pulmonary, cardiovascular, hepatic or renal functional abnormality, as determined by physical examination or laboratory screening tests.
  • Acute disease and/or fever at the time of enrolment.
  • Serious chronic disease including any medically significant chronic pulmonary, cardiovascular, renal, neurological, psychiatric or metabolic disorder, as determined by medical history and physical examination..
  • Administration of immunoglobulins and/or any blood products within the three months preceding the first study vaccination or during the study.
