The purpose of the study is to evaluate the immunogenicity and safety of Kinrix when co-administered with varicella (Varivax® [varicella virus vaccine live], Merck and Company) and MMR vaccines, compared to Kinrix co-administered with MMR vaccine alone. Both Kinrix and the second dose of Varivax are indicated in children 4-6 years of age, and there is great potential for the vaccines to be given concurrently. The aim of this trial is to demonstrate that co-administered Varivax does not negatively affect the immunogenicity or reactogenicity of Kinrix.
Subjects 4-6 years of age will be randomized into two groups to receive either Kinrix, Varivax and M-M-RII on day 0 (Group 1) or Kinrix and M-M-RII on day 0 and Varivax at month 1(Group 2).
All subjects in both groups to provide blood samples prior to vaccination on day 0 and at month 1 (for Group 2, blood sampling is prior to vaccination with Varivax).
Duration of the study will be approximately 6 months for each subject with a safety telephone contact 6 months after vaccinations.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

A group of islands in the southwest Pacific. Its capital is Wellington. It was discovered by the Dutch explorer Abel Tasman in 1642 and circumnavigated by Cook in 1769. Colonized in 1840 by the New Zealand Company, it became a British crown colony in 1840 until 1907 when colonial status was terminated. New Zealand is a partly anglicized form of the original Dutch name Nieuw Zeeland, new sea land, possibly with reference to the Dutch province of Zeeland.
