Ages Eligible for Study:   10 Years to 25 Years   (Child, Adult)
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

All subjects must satisfy ALL of the following criteria at study entry:

  • Subjects whom the investigator believes that they and/or their parent(s)/Legally Acceptable Representative(s) can and will comply with the requirements of the protocol.
  • A male or female between, and including, 10 and 25 years of age at the time of the vaccination.
  • Written informed consent obtained from the subject/from the parent or Legally Acceptable Representative(s) of the subject. Assent will be obtained from subjects who are still legally minors in line with local rules and regulations.
  • Healthy subjects as established by medical history and clinical examination before entering into the study.
  • Previously completed routine childhood vaccinations to the best of subject's/Legally Acceptable Representative(s)'s knowledge.
  • Female subjects of non-childbearing potential may be enrolled in the study.
  • Female subjects of childbearing potential may be enrolled in the study, if the subject:

    • has practiced adequate contraception for 30 days prior to vaccination, and
    • has a negative pregnancy test on the day of vaccination, and
    • has agreed to continue adequate contraception for 2 months after vaccination.

Exclusion Criteria:

The following criteria should be checked at the time of study entry. If ANY exclusion criterion applies, the subject must not be included in the study:

  • Use of any investigational or non-registered product other than the study vaccine(s) within 30 days preceding the dose of study vaccine, or planned use during the study period.
  • Chronic administration (defined as more than 14 days) of immunosuppressants or other immune-modifying drugs within six months prior to vaccination. (For corticosteroids, this will mean prednisone <10 mg/day, or equivalent, is allowed. Inhaled and topical steroids are allowed.)
  • Planned administration/administration of a vaccine not foreseen by the study protocol within one month of the dose of vaccine, with the exception of any licensed inactivated influenza vaccine.
  • Previous vaccination with meningococcal polysaccharide or conjugate vaccine.
  • Previous vaccination with vaccine components within the last month.
  • History of meningococcal disease.
  • Any confirmed or suspected immunosuppressive or immunodeficient condition, including human immunodeficiency virus infection, based on medical history and physical examination.
  • A family history of congenital or hereditary immunodeficiency, until the immune competence of the potential vaccine recipient is demonstrated.
  • History of allergic reactions or disease likely to be exacerbated by any component of either vaccine, or by dry natural rubber latex.
  • History of any neurologic disorders, including Guillain-Barré Syndrome.
  • Major congenital defects or serious chronic illness.
  • Acute disease at the time of enrollment.
  • Administration of immunoglobulins and/or any blood products within the three months preceding the dose of study vaccine or planned administration during the study period.
  • Pregnant or lactating female.
  • History of chronic alcohol consumption and/or drug abuse.
  • Female planning to become pregnant or planning to discontinue contraceptive precautions.
  • Bleeding disorders, such as thrombocytopenia, or subjects on anti-coagulant therapy.
  • Child in care.
  • 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.
