↵a Blood sample 1 is from day 0 (prevaccination), 2 is from week 6 since vaccination, and 3 is from year 2 since vaccination.

↵b GMC, geometric mean concentration. All values are expressed in ELU/ml.

↵c Attained protective antigen level (Vi, ≥150 ELU/ml [GSK in-house standard]). We used the value 75 ELU/ml (midpoint) for those listed as <150 ELU/ml in the report.

↵d Achieved a ≥4-fold rise in antibodies, in relation to baseline, as detected in the cited blood sample.

↵e
