Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is to continue the evaluation of antibody persistence through 11 to 15 years after first booster with Tick-Borne Encephalitis (TBE) vaccine. This study will further investigate the booster response in subjects who will receive their second booster dose* in this study.

* Any booster given in this study will be the second that the subject has received (with regard to the follow-up of the previous study).

    To complement the analysis of persistence, a thorough description of NT waning from year 1 after the first booster dose up to 15 years will be presented for the set of subjects completing the entire 15-year follow-up with no protocol deviations, including those receiving a second booster dose; for whom, a constant value of NT = 1 from the post booster visit will be used in the analysis.

    The safety endpoint for subjects who will need a second booster vaccination will be based on SAEs collection after the second booster dose.

    SAEs are defined as any untoward medical occurrence that results in death, is life- threatening, requires hospitalisation or prolongation of existing hospitalisation, results in disability/incapacity or is a congenital anomaly/birth defect in the offspring of a study subject.
