  • Subjects will be enrolled in booster dose visit only if this is their first visit or first dose of Synflorix in the post-marketing surveillance. For subjects who will receive Synflorix as a booster dose to a primary vaccination series of a pneumococcal vaccine other than Synflorix, there should be an interval of at least 6 months from the last dose of primary vaccination.
  • Written, signed or thumb-printed informed consent obtained from the parent(s)/guardian(s)/LAR of the child. Where parent(s)/guardian(s) are illiterate, the consent form will be countersigned by a witness.
