Inclusion Criteria

A male or female between and including 18 and 45 years of age (YAs) or between and including 60 and 80 years of age (OAs) at the time of the study intervention administration. The age of sentinel participants in OA category will be limited to maximum 70 years
Healthy or medically stable participants as established by medical history, safety laboratory assessments and clinical examination
Body mass index ≥ 18 kg/m^2 and ≤ 32 kg/m^2
Participants who, in the opinion of the investigator, can and will comply with the requirements of the protocol
Written informed consent obtained from the participant prior to performing any study-specific procedure
Female participants of non-childbearing potential may be enrolled in the study
Female participants of childbearing potential may be enrolled in the study if the
has practiced adequate contraception for 28 days prior to study intervention administration, and
has a negative pregnancy test on the day of study intervention administration, and
has agreed to continue adequate contraception for at least 1 month after study intervention administration

Exclusion Criteria

Medical conditions
Acute or chronic clinically significant pulmonary, cardiovascular, hepatic or renal functional abnormality, as determined by physical examination or review of the participant's medical record
Any clinically significant hematological coagulation or urine analysis laboratory abnormality
The investigator should use his/her clinical judgement to decide which abnormalities are clinically significant
Current or past malignancy, unless completely resolved without sequelae for >5 years
Any confirmed or suspected immunosuppressive or immunodeficient condition, including HIV infection, based on medical history and physical examination (no laboratory testing required)
History of any reaction or hypersensitivity likely to be exacerbated by any component of the study intervention (including latex, poly-ethylene-glycol, egg protein and aminoglycoside antibiotics)
Recurrent history or uncontrolled neurological disorders or seizures, including Guillain-Barré syndrome and Bell's palsy, with the exception of febrile seizures during childhood
Any medical condition that in the judgment of the investigator would make intramuscular injection unsafe
Any other clinical condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, might pose additional risk to the participant due to participation in the study
Significant exposure to persons with influenza or laboratory-confirmed SARS-CoV-2 within 7 days prior to Visit 1 (Day 1) and for whom a SARS-CoV-2 PCR test has not (yet) been confirmed as negative
Prior/Concomitant therapy
Administration of seasonal influenza vaccine within 180 days before enrollment or planned administration up to Visit 4 (Day 29)
Administration of a vaccine not foreseen by the study protocol in the period starting 28 days before the study intervention administration, or planned administration within 28 days after the study intervention administration, with the exception of vaccines authorized or approved for the prevention of COVID-19 (regardless of the type of vaccine)
In case emergency mass vaccination for an unforeseen public health threat is organized by public health authorities outside the routine immunization program, the time period described above can be reduced to 7 days, if necessary, for that mass vaccination vaccine, provided it is used according to the local governmental recommendations and that the Sponsor is notified accordingly
Use of any investigational or non-registered product (drug, vaccine or invasive medical device) other than the study intervention during the period beginning 30 days before the study intervention administration, or their planned use during the study period
Administration of long-acting immune-modifying drugs within 90 days before enrollment or planned use at any time during the study period
Administration of immunoglobulins and/or any blood products or plasma derivatives during the period starting 90 days before the study intervention administration, or planned administration during the study period. Administration of monoclonal antibodies specifically directed against the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 virus, for treatment of COVID-19 disease is allowed
Chronic administration (defined as more than 14 days in total) of immunosuppressants or other immune-modifying drugs during the period starting 3 months prior to the study intervention administration. For corticosteroids, this will mean prednisone equivalent ≥ 20 mg/day. Inhaled, topical and intraarticular steroids are allowed
Other exclusions
Pregnant or lactating female
Female planning to become pregnant or planning to discontinue contraceptive precautions within the 1-month post-dosing period
History of abusive alcohol and/or drug consumption in the past 5 years
Any study personnel or their immediate dependents, family, or household members
Participants with extensive tattoos covering deltoid region on both arms that would preclude the assessment of local reactogenicity
