This research study will compare three different vaccination schedules and will use two different ways of giving the vaccination. One method is an intramuscular vaccination using a needle. This is how many routine vaccinations are given. The other method this study will use is a needle free injection system. With this system, the vaccine is given with a high velocity fluid jet, which penetrates the skin and delivers the vaccine to the body. The research hopes to identify if one vaccination schedule and/or one method of delivery shows a better immune response.
