Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adults: Percentage of Participants With an Adverse Event [ Time Frame: Up to 6 weeks after vaccination ]
    An adverse event (AE) is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered a pharmaceutical product and which does not necessarily have to have a causal relationship with this treatment. An AE can therefore be any unfavourable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product or protocol-specified procedure, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product or protocol-specified procedure. Any worsening of a preexisting condition that is temporally associated with the use of the Sponsor's product, is also an AE.

  2. Infants: Percentage of Participants With an Adverse Event [ Time Frame: Up to 1 month after Vaccination 4 (Month 11-15) ]
    An AE is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered a pharmaceutical product and which does not necessarily have to have a causal relationship with this treatment. An AE can therefore be any unfavourable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product or protocol-specified procedure, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product or protocol-specified procedure. Any worsening of a preexisting condition that is temporally associated with the use of the Sponsor's product, is also an AE.

  3. Infants: Percentage of Participants With Study Vaccination Withdrawn Due to an Adverse Event [ Time Frame: Up to time of Vaccination 4 (Month 10-13) ]
    An AE is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered a pharmaceutical product and which does not necessarily have to have a causal relationship with this treatment. An AE can therefore be any unfavourable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product or protocol-specified procedure, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product or protocol-specified procedure. Any worsening of a preexisting condition that is temporally associated with the use of the Sponsor's product, is also an AE.

  4. Infants: Percentage of Participants With a Solicited Injection-site Adverse Event [ Time Frame: Up to 14 days after any vaccination ]
    Solicited injection-site AEs were injection-site erythema, injection-site induration, injection-site pain, and injection-site swelling.

  5. Infants: Percentage of Participants With a Solicited Systemic Adverse Event [ Time Frame: Up to 14 days after any vaccination ]
    Solicited systemic AEs were irritability, decreased appetite, somnolence, and urticaria.

  6. Infants: Geometric Mean Concentration (GMC) of Pneumococcal Serotype IgG Antibodies [ Time Frame: 1 month after Vaccination 3 (Month 5) ]
    Pneumococcal serotype-specific IgG was measured in serum using an electrochemiluminescence assay.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adults: Geometric Mean Concentration (GMC) of Pneumococcal Serotype IgG Antibodies [ Time Frame: 1 month after vaccination ]
    Pneumococcal serotype-specific IgG was measured in serum using an electrochemiluminescence assay.

  2. Adults: Geometric Mean Fold Rise (GMFR) From Baseline in GMC of Pneumococcal Serotype IgG Antibodies [ Time Frame: Baseline and 1 month after vaccination ]
    Pneumococcal serotype-specific IgG was measured in serum using an electrochemiluminescence assay. GMFR is defined as the geometric mean of the ratio of concentration at 1 month after vaccination divided by concentration at baseline.

  3. Infants: Percentage of Participants With GMC ≥0.35 µg/mL at 1 Month After Vaccination 3 [ Time Frame: 1 month after Vaccination 3 (Month 5) ]
    Pneumococcal serotype-specific IgG was measured in serum using an electrochemiluminescence assay.

  4. Infants: Percentage of Participants With GMC ≥0.35 µg/mL Before Vaccination 4 [ Time Frame: Before Vaccination 4 (Month 10-13) ]
    Pneumococcal serotype-specific IgG was measured in serum using an electrochemiluminescence assay.

  5. Infants: Percentage of Participants With GMC ≥0.35 µg/mL at 1 Month After Vaccination 4 [ Time Frame: 1 month after Vaccination 4 (Month 11-15) ]
    Pneumococcal serotype-specific IgG was measured in serum using an electrochemiluminescence assay.

  6. Infants: Geometric Mean Concentration of Pneumococcal Serotype IgG Antibodies [ Time Frame: Before Vaccination 4 (Month 10-13) ]
    Pneumococcal serotype-specific IgG was measured in serum using an electrochemiluminescence assay.

  7. Infants: Geometric Mean Concentration of Pneumococcal Serotype IgG Antibodies [ Time Frame: 1 month after Vaccination 4 (Month 11-15) ]
    Pneumococcal serotype-specific IgG was measured in serum using an electrochemiluminescence assay.
