Brief Summary:
This is a study of V114 in healthy children who are either pneumococcal vaccine-naïve or who previously received a partial or full regimen of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV). Participants will be randomly assigned, in a 1:1 ratio, to receive either V114 or Prevnar 13®. Randomization will be stratified by age (7 months to 11 months, 12 months to 23 months [<2 years], ≥2 years to <6 years, and ≥6 years to 17 years [inclusive]). The primary objectives are to evaluate the safety and tolerability of V114 and to evaluate the anti-pneumococcal polysaccharide (PnPs) serotype-specific Immunoglobulin G (IgG) Geometric Mean Concentrations (GMCs) at 30 days following the last dose for each vaccination group. There is no formal hypothesis.

Schedule A, 7 to 11 months of age, 3 doses: Dose 1 at randomization, Dose 2 at 1-2 months after Dose 1, and Dose 3 at 2-3 months after Dose 2 and at ≥12 months of age. Schedule B, 12 to 23 months of age, 2 doses: Dose 1 at randomization, and Dose 2 at 2-3 months after Dose 1. Schedule C, 2 to 17 years of age, 1 dose: Single dose at randomization.
Biological: V114
V114 15-valent PVC containing 13 serotypes present in Prevnar 13® (1, 3, 4, 5, 6A, 6B, 7F, 9V, 14, 18C, 19A, 19F, and 23F) and 2 unique serotypes (22F and 33F) in each 0.5 mL IM administration

Active Comparator: Prevnar 13
Each dose consists of 0.5 mL IM injection. Schedule A, 7 to 11 months of age, 3 doses: Dose 1 at randomization, Dose 2 at 1-2 months after Dose 1, and Dose 3 at 2-3 months after Dose 2 and at ≥12 months of age. Schedule B, 12 to 23 months of age, 2 doses: Dose 1 at randomization, and Dose 2 at 2-3 months after Dose 1. Schedule C, 2 to 17 years of age, 1 dose: Single dose at randomization.
Biological: Prevnar 13
Prevnar 13® 13-valent PCV containing 13 serotypes (1, 3, 4, 5, 6A, 6B, 7F, 9V, 14, 18C, 19A, 19F, and 23F) in each 0.5 mL IM administration.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Immunoglobulin G (IgG) GMCs for Each of the 15 Serotypes [ Time Frame: 30 days post final vaccination ]
    Sera from participants will be used to measure vaccine-induced anti-PnPs serotype-specific IgG for all the 15 serotypes using pneumococcal electrochemiluminescence (PnECL).

  2. Percentage of Participants that Report at Least 1 Solicited Injection-site Adverse Event (AE) [ Time Frame: Up to 14 days post any vaccination ]
    An AE is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a participant which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with study vaccine. An AE can therefore be any unfavourable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of study vaccine or a protocol-specified procedure, whether or not considered related to the study vaccine or protocol-specified procedure. Any worsening of a preexisting condition that is temporally associated with the study drug or protocol-specified procedure is also an AE. The parent/guardian of the participant are to record the presence of any vaccination report card (VRC)-prompted injection-site AEs that occur in the 14 days after any vaccination. The percentage of participants with an injection-site AE prompted on the VRC (erythema, pain, and swelling) will be summarized.

  3. Percentage of Participants that Report at Least 1 Solicited Systemic AE [ Time Frame: Up to 14 days post any vaccination ]
    An AE is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a participant which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with study vaccine. An AE can therefore be any unfavourable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of study vaccine or a protocol-specified procedure, whether or not considered related to the study drug or protocol-specified procedure. Any worsening of a preexisting condition that is temporally associated with the study vaccine or protocol-specified procedure is also an AE. The parent/guardian of the participant are to record the presence of any VRC-prompted systemic AEs that occur in the 14 days after any vaccination. The percentage of participants with a systemic AE will be summarized.

  4. Percentage of Participants that Report at Least 1 Vaccine-related AE [ Time Frame: 30 days post final vaccination ]
    An adverse event (AE) is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a participant which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with study vaccine. An AE can therefore be any unfavourable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of study vaccine or a protocol-specified procedure, whether or not considered related to the study drug or protocol-specified procedure. Any worsening of a preexisting condition that is temporally associated with the study vaccine or protocol-specified procedure is also an AE. The percentage of participants that report at least 1 AE that was considered at least possibly related to the study vaccine will be summarized.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants Meeting Serotype-specific IgG Threshold Value of ≥0.35 μg/mL for Each of the 15 Serotypes [ Time Frame: 30 days post final vaccination ]
    Sera from participants will be used to measure vaccine-induced anti-PnPs serotype-specific IgG for all the 15 serotypes using PnECL. The percentage that achieve the GMC threshold value of ≥0.35 μg/mL will be summarized.
