Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Subjects With a Vaccine Response for Anti-gE Antibodies [ Time Frame: At Month 3 ]

    Vaccine response rate for anti-gE antibody concentrations, as determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), in subjects from the Co-Ad group. Vaccine response defined as :

    For initially seronegative subjects, antibody concentration at post-vaccination ≥ 4 fold the cut-off for Anti-gE (4x97 mIU/mL) For initially seropositive subjects, antibody concentration at post-vaccination ≥ 4 fold the pre-vaccination antibody concentration


  2. Anti-glicoprotein E (gE) Antibody Concentrations [ Time Frame: At one month post-dose 2 (Month 3 for the Co-Ad Group and Month 5 for the Control Group) ]
    Antibody concentrations were determined by ELISA, presented as geometric mean concentrations and expressed as milli international units per milliliter (mIU/mL).

  3. Anti-pneumococcal Antibody Titers [ Time Frame: At one month post-dose (Month 1) ]
    Anti-pneumococcal antibody titers were presented as geometric mean titers (GMTs) for the 12 following serotypes as determined by Opsonophagocytic Assay (OPA): 1, 3, 4, 5, 6B, 7F, 9V, 14, 18C, 19A, 19F, and 23F.

  4. Adjusted Ratios of Geometric Mean Titers (GMTs) Between Groups [ Time Frame: At 1 month after vaccination ]
    The Adjusted ratios of GMTs between groups (Control group and Co-Ad group) were presented for each individual pneumococcal conjugate serotype Opsonophagocytic Activity (OPA).

  5. Adjusted GMCs Between Groups [ Time Frame: At 1 month after last vaccine dose ]
    The Adjusted ratios of GMCs between groups (Control group and Co-Ad group) was presented for anti-gE antibody ELISA concentrations


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Subjects With Any and Grade 3 Solicited Local Symptoms, by Dose [ Time Frame: Within 7 days (Days 0 - 6) after each vaccination ]
    Assessed solicited local symptoms were pain, redness and swelling. Any = occurrence of the symptom regardless of intensity grade. Grade 3 pain = pain that prevented normal activity. Grade 3 redness/swelling = redness/swelling spreading beyond 100 millimeters (mm) of injection site. The Co-Ad Group received only 2 vaccine doses.

  2. Number of Subjects With Solicited Local Symptoms, Across Doses, by Vaccine [ Time Frame: Within 7 days (Days 0 - 6) after vaccination ]
    Assessed solicited local symptoms were pain, redness and swelling. Any = occurrence of the symptom regardless of intensity grade. Grade 3 pain = pain that prevented normal activity. Grade 3 redness/swelling = redness/swelling spreading beyond 100 millimeters (mm) of injection site.

  3. Number of Subjects With Any, Grade 3 and Related Solicited General Symptoms. [ Time Frame: During the 7-day (Days 0-6) post-vaccination period following each dose and across doses ]
    Assessed solicited general symptoms were arthralgia, fatigue, fever [defined as axillary temperature equal to or above 37.5 degrees Celsius (°C)], headache, myalgia, shivering and sweating. Any = occurrence of the symptom regardless of intensity grade. Grade 3 symptom = symptom that prevented normal activity. Grade 3 fever = fever > 39.0 °C. Related = symptom assessed by the investigator as related to the vaccination.

  4. Number of Days With Any Solicited Local and General Symptoms [ Time Frame: Within 7 days (Days 0 - 6) after each vaccination ]
    The Co-Ad Group received only 2 vaccine doses, hence the number of participants for the Dose 3 categories in this group is 0.

  5. Number of Subjects With Unsolicited Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: From the first dose up to 30 days post last vaccination period ]
    An unsolicited AE covers any untoward medical occurrence in a clinical investigation subject temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product and reported in addition to those solicited during the clinical study and any solicited symptom with onset outside the specified period of follow-up for solicited symptoms. Any was defined as the occurrence of any unsolicited AE regardless of intensity grade or relation to vaccination. Grade 3 AE = an AE which prevented normal, everyday activities. Related = AE assessed by the investigator as related to the vaccination.

  6. Number of Subjects With Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: From the first dose up to 30 days post last vaccination period ]
    Serious adverse events (SAEs) assessed include medical occurrences that result in death, are life threatening, require hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization or result in disability/incapacity.

  7. Number of Subjects With Potential Immune Mediated Diseases (pIMDs) [ Time Frame: From first vaccination up to 30 days post last vaccination (Month 0 - Month 3 for the Co-Ad Group & Month 0 - Month 5 for the Control Group) ]
    Potential immune-mediated diseases (pIMDs) are a subset of AEs that include autoimmune diseases and other inflammatory and/or neurologic disorders of interest which may or may not have an autoimmune aetiology.

  8. Number of Subjects With Potential Immune Mediated Diseases (pIMDs) [ Time Frame: During the period starting after 30 days post last vaccination up to study end (Month 3 - Month 14 for the Co-Ad Group & Month 5 - Month 16 for the Control Group) ]
    Potential immune-mediated diseases (pIMDs) are a subset of AEs that include autoimmune diseases and other inflammatory and/or neurologic disorders of interest which may or may not have an autoimmune aetiology.
