Grade 3 drowsiness was defined as drowsiness that prevented normal activity. Any fever was defined as subjects with a documented temperature of greater than or equal to (≥) 38°C/100.4°F by any route and all subjects reporting temperature less than (< )38°C but with missing values (MC) for at least one day during the solicited period. Grade 3 fever was defined as temperature greater than (>)39.0°C.

    Duration was defined as number of days with any grade of local symptoms.

  19. Duration of Solicited General AEs in Subjects Aged 6-35 Months. [ Time Frame: During the 7-day (Days 0-6) post-vaccination period ]

  20. Number of Subjects Aged 6-35 Months Reporting Solicited Oculorespiratory Syndrome (ORS) Like Symptoms. [ Time Frame: During a 3 day (Days 0-2) follow-up period after vaccination ]
    Oculorespiratory syndrome (ORS) was defined as the occurrence within 24 hours after vaccination of one or more of the following newly onset symptoms: bilateral red eyes, cough, wheeze, chest tightness, difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, hoarseness, sore throat, facial swelling. Any = occurrence of any ORS symptom regardless of intensity grade or relationship to vaccination. Grade 3 = ORS symptoms that prevented normal activities. Related = ORS symptom assessed by the investigator as causally related to the vaccination.

  21. Number of Subjects Aged 6-35 Months Reporting the Occurrence of All Medically Attended Events (MAEs) [ Time Frame: During the entire study period (approximately 28 days (primed subjects) and 56 days (unprimed subjects) following vaccination ]
    MAEs were defined as adverse events with medically-attended visits that were not routine visits for physical examination or vaccination, such as visits for hospitalization, an emergency room visit, or an otherwise unscheduled visit to or from medical personnel (medical doctor) for any reason. Any was defined as any occurrence of MAE(s). Grade 3 was a MAE that prevented normal activities. Related was defined as a MAE assessed by the investigator to be causally related to the study vaccination.

  22. Number of Subjects Aged 6-35 Months Reporting Any, Grade 3 and Related Unsolicited Adverse Events (AEs). [ Time Frame: During the 28-day (Days 0-27) follow-up period after vaccination ]
    An unsolicited AE was defined as an untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject, temporally associated with 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 occurrence of any unsolicited symptom regardless of intensity grade or relation to vaccination. Grade 3 unsolicited AE was defined as an event that prevented normal activity. Related unsolicited AE was defined as an event assessed by the investigator to be causally related to the study vaccination.

  23. Number of Subjects Aged 6-35 Months, Reporting Any and Related Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: During the entire study period [approximately 28 days (primed subjects) and 56 days (unprimed subjects)] ]
    A serious adverse event was defined as any untoward medical occurrence that: resulted in death, was life threatening, required hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization, resulted in disability/incapacity or was a congenital anomaly/birth defect in the offspring of a study subject. Any was defined as occurrence of any symptom regardless of intensity grade or relation to vaccination and related was an event assessed by the investigator as causally related to the study vaccination.
