Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Humoral immune response in terms of haemagglutination inhibition (HI) antibodies [ Time Frame: At Day 0, Day 21, Day 42 and at Month 6 + 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Humoral immune response in terms of HI antibodies [ Time Frame: At Day 0, Day 21, Day 42, Month 6, Month 6 + 7 days, Month 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Humoral immune response in terms of neutralising antibodies [ Time Frame: At Day 0, Day 21, Day 42, Month 6, Month 6 + 7 days, Month 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence of local and general symptoms [ Time Frame: During a 7-day follow-up period after each vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence of unsolicited symptoms [ Time Frame: During a 21-day follow-up period after first vaccination, a 63-day follow-up after second vaccination and a 30-day follow-up after booster vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence of serious adverse events, adverse events of specific interest or potential mediated-disease, medically attended events [ Time Frame: During the entire study period (Day 0 - Month 18) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence of subjects with normal or abnormal biochemical parameters [ Time Frame: At Day 0, Day 21, Day 42, Month 6 and Month 6 + 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
