abstinent or use adequate contraceptive precautions for 30 days prior to vaccination.
Subjects also are required to agree to continue such precautions for two months after

menstruating) during the study and therefore become of child-bearing potential are

period (up to the Month 12/13 visit), in which the subject has been or will be
exposed to an investigational or a non-investigational product.
- Chronic administration of immunosuppressants or other immune-modifying drugs within
six months prior to the first vaccine dose.
- Planned administration/administration of a vaccine not foreseen by the study protocol
within 30 days before and 30 days after each dose of vaccine. Administration of
routine vaccines up to 8 days before the first dose of study vaccine is allowed.
Enrolment will be deferred until the subject is outside of specified window.

discontinue contraceptive precautions during the study period and up to two months
after the last vaccine dose.
- Pregnant or breastfeeding women.
- Previous vaccination against HPV, or planned administration of any HPV vaccine other
than that foreseen by the study protocol during the study period.
- previous administration of components of the investigational vaccine
- Administration of a pre-school booster of diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis vaccine
within the previous five years.

pertussis (Tdap) vaccine within the previous five years.

- Seizures with or without fever within three days of a prior dose of DTP vaccine.
- Severe Arthus-type hypersensitivity reactions following a prior dose of tetanus
toxoid within the previous 10 years.
- Previous history of Guillain-Barré syndrome.
- Any confirmed or suspected immunosuppressive or immunodeficient condition
- Acute disease at the time of enrolment. All vaccines can be administered to persons
with a minor illness
- Administration of immunoglobulins and/or any blood products within the 3 months
