And prior to obtaining informed consent form, the investigator will check whether the subject is eligible for vaccination.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • At the time of post-marketing surveillance (PMS) entry, the contraindications and precautions of use indicated in the local Prescribing Information should be checked and the subject must not be included in the PMS if there is any contraindication.
