  18. Proportion of subjects with satisfactory humoral response to Prevnar 13 [ Time Frame: Week 4 of the sub-study (approximately 136 weeks) ]
    Satisfactory response is defined as greater than or equal to 2-fold increase in antibody concentration from the vaccination baseline in at least 6 out of the 12 pneumococcal antigens.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of subjects with satisfactory humoral response to Prevnar 13 [ Time Frame: Week 12 of the sub-study (approximately 252 weeks) ]
    Satisfactory response is defined as greater than or equal to 2-fold increase in antibody concentration from the vaccination baseline in at least 6 out of the 12 pneumococcal antigens

  2. Change in geometric mean fold rise of anti-pneumococcal antibody levels [ Time Frame: Up to Week 12 of the sub-study (approximately 252 weeks) ]
    Anti-pneumococcal antibody levels to each of the 12 pneumococcal antigens above vaccination baseline values.
