Injection site and systemic symptoms will be collected for 21 days after vaccination. Other AEs assessed as related to vaccination will be collected at a 6 month and 1 year phone call.
time frame: 21 days post-immunization; follow up at 6 months and one year
Immune response to vaccine will be measured by serum HAI levels
time frame: 21 days post-immunization

- Preceding the administration of study vaccine, has received or will receive 1) any licensed or investigational influenza vaccine product within 6 months, 2) any investigational drug or any investigational vaccine product other than influenza vaccine within the 30 days, 3) any licensed live vaccine other than influenza vaccine within 4 weeks, 4) any licensed inactivated vaccine other than influenza vaccine within 2 weeks
- Planned receipt before the Day 21 blood draw of 1) any licensed or investigational influenza vaccine product, 2) any investigational drug or any investigational vaccine product other than influenza vaccine, 3) any licensed live vaccine other than influenza vaccine, 4) any licensed inactivated vaccine other than influenza vaccine
- History of excessive alcohol use, drug abuse or significant psychiatric illness
- Has a chronic illness that is not medically stable, is receiving a concomitant therapy in which the medication dose has not been stable for at least 3 weeks prior to immunization or has any other condition that could interfere with the subject's participation in the study or interpretation of the study results

- Systolic blood pressure < 85 mm Hg and subjects whose hypertension is untreated or unstable with antihypertensive therapy or that have systolic BP ≥ 160 mm Hg or diastolic BP ≥ 100 mm Hg requiring medical intervention with more than one drug or more intensive therapy than previously used or indicated.
- Body Mass Index >40
- Disorders of coagulation
- Women less than 1 year post menopausal

|Official title||Phase 1b/2 Double Blind, Randomized, Placebo Controlled Study of Safety and Immunogenicity of VAX2012Q: A Quadrivalent Influenza Vaccine in Healthy Adults Age 65-75 Years|
|Description||The purpose of this study is to evaluate, in a stepwise fashion, dose levels for an investigational quadrivalent influenza vaccine containing 2 influenza A strains and 2 influenza B strains. This is a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose escalating study in which up to 200 healthy adults age 65-75 years will be administered a single dose of either placebo or an investigational influenza vaccine (VAX2012Q, Quadrivalent Recombinant Hemagglutinin Seasonal Influenza Vaccine) at one of up to 3 dose levels. Fifty or up to 75 subjects will be enrolled in each dose level. Data for safety and immunogenicity will be collected for all dose levels.|
