Brief Summary:
This study aims to evaluate the immunogenicity, by means of cell mediated immunity (CMI) and hemagglutination inhibition (HI) assay, and also the safety of a MF59C.1-adjuvanted subunit influenza vaccine compared with a conventional subunit vaccine in previously unvaccinated children aged 6 to <36 months.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Arm 1 Biological: MF59C.1-adjuvanted subunit influenza vaccine
2 x 0.25 ml doses administered intramuscularly in the deltoid muscle of (preferably) the non dominant arm
Active Comparator: Arm 2 Biological: Sub unit, Inactivated, Influenza vaccine
2 x 0.25 ml doses administered intramuscularly in the deltoid muscle of (preferably) the non dominant arm



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Cell mediated immune (CMI) responses as determined by the quality and quantity of the antigen-specific T- cells responses after in-vitro restimulation of peripheral blood mononuclear cells at day 0 and day 50 following vaccination.Safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: 50 Days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Seroprotection, GMRs and seroconversion rate at day 0 and day 50 after vaccination [ Time Frame: 50 days ]
