Ages Eligible for Study:   60 Days to 90 Days   (Child)
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  • A male or female infant between, and including, 60 and 90 days of age at the time of the first vaccination.
  • Born after a gestation period of 36 to 42 weeks inclusive.
  • Subjects who the investigator believes that their parent(s)/Legally Acceptable Representative (LAR) (s) can and will comply with the requirements of the protocol.
  • Written informed consent obtained from the parent(s)/LAR(s) of the subject.
  • Healthy subjects as established by medical history and clinical examination before entering into the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Use of any investigational or non-registered product other than the study vaccine(s) within 30 days preceding the first dose of study vaccine, or planned use during the study period.
  • Chronic administration of immunosuppressants or other immune-modifying drugs since birth.
  • Administration of immunoglobulins and/or any blood products since birth or planned administration during the study period.
  • Administration of a vaccine not foreseen by the study protocol within 30 days prior to vaccination, or planned administration during the study period, with exception of DTP, Hib and/or hepatitis B vaccine(s).
  • Concurrently participating in another clinical study, at any time during the study period, in which the subject has been or will be exposed to an investigational or a non-investigational product.
  • Evidence of previous or intercurrent poliomyelitis disease or vaccination.
  • History of seizures or progressive neurological disease.
  • Any confirmed or suspected immunosuppressive or immunodeficient condition, based on medical history and physical examination.
  • History of any reaction or hypersensitivity likely to be exacerbated by any component of the vaccine(s).
  • Major congenital defects or serious chronic illness.
  • Child in care.

The following condition is temporary or self-limiting, and a subject may be vaccinated once the condition has resolved and if no other exclusion criteria are met:

• Current febrile illness or axillary temperature > 37.0 ºC or other moderate to severe illness within 24 hours of study vaccine administration.
