  5. Healthy subjects as established by medical history and clinical examination before entering into the study.
  6. Female subjects of non-childbearing potential may be enrolled in the study.
    • Non-childbearing potential is defined as pre-menarche, current bilateral tubal ligation or occlusion, hysterectomy, bilateral ovariectomy or post-menopause

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Child in care
  2. Anaphylaxis following the administration of vaccine.
  3. Any (clinical) condition that in the judgment of the investigator would make intramuscular injection unsafe &/represents a contraindication to intramuscular vaccination and blood draws.
  4. Any confirmed or suspected immunosuppressive or immunodeficient condition, including HIV infection.
  5. Progressive, unstable or uncontrolled clinical conditions.
  6. Hypersensitivity, including allergy, to any component of vaccines, medicinal products or medical equipment whose use is foreseen in this study.
  7. Hypersensitivity to the active substances or to any of the excipients of the vaccine, including diphtheria toxoid (CRM197), or a life-threatening reaction after previous administration of a vaccine containing similar components.
  8. Abnormal function of the immune system resulting from:
    • Clinical conditions.
    • Systemic administration of corticosteroids within 90 days prior to informed consent, and until the Day 29 blood draw.
    • Administration of antineoplastic and immunomodulating agents or radiotherapy within 90 days prior to informed consent, and until the Day 29 blood draw.
  9. Received immunoglobulins or any blood products within 180 days prior to informed consent.
  10. Received an investigational or non-registered medicinal product within 30 days prior to informed consent.
  11. Any other clinical condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, might pose additional risk to the subject due to participation in the study.
  12. History of any meningococcal vaccination, with the exception of previous meningococcal C vaccination, if the last dose of MenC was received at 24 months of age.
  13. Individuals who received any other vaccines within 7 days (for inactivated vaccines) or 14 days prior to enrolment in this study or who are planning to receive any vaccine within 28 days from the study vaccines.*
    • In case an emergency mass vaccination for an unforeseen public health threat is organized by the public health authorities, outside the routine immunization program, the time period described above can be reduced if necessary for that vaccine provided it is licensed and used according to its Prescribing Information and according to the local governmental recommendations and provided a written approval of the sponsor is obtained.
  14. Administration of long-acting immune-modifying drugs at any time during the study period (e.g. infliximab).
  15. Concurrently participating in another clinical study, at any time during the study period, in which the subject has been or will be exposed to an investigational or a non-investigational vaccine/product (pharmaceutical product or device).
  16. Current or previous, confirmed or suspected disease caused by N. meningitidis.
  17. Household contact with and/or intimate exposure to an individual with any laboratory confirmed N. meningitidis infection within 60 days prior to study vaccination.
  18. Acute disease and/or fever within 3 days prior to study vaccination. Note: enrolment may be postponed/delayed until such transient circumstances have ended.
    • Fever is defined as body temperature 38.0C/100.4F. The preferred location for measuring temperature in this study will be the oral cavity.
    • Subjects with a minor illness (such as mild diarrhoea, mild upper respiratory infection) without fever may be enrolled at the discretion of the investigator.
