Eligible children will be randomized to receive simultaneous or sequentially administered US licensed PCV13, US-licensed DTaP vaccine, and US-licensed inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV). Children in the simultaneous group will receive PCV13, DTaP, and IIV vaccines at Visit 1, and then return for a health education visit without vaccination about 2 weeks later (Visit 2). Children in the sequential group will receive both PCV13 and DTaP without IIV at Visit 1, and then will receive IIV and health education about 2 weeks later (Visit 2). Parents will record the occurrence of fever, solicited adverse events, medical care utilization, and receipt of antipyretics over 8 days following Visit 1 and Visit 2.
