  1. aContinuous assessment and selection from routinely collected cohort data
  2. bEnrollment and concealed allocation of patients with informed consent will be performed during the same visit when the study is explained to the patient or, if preferred, during a separate arranged study visit. Not all study centers will have both vaccines available at each vaccination day. This probably requires us to randomize some patients as soon as they give consent to a specific vaccination day on which their allocated vaccination will be applied some days before applying the vaccine
  3. cAssessed in separate data entry form for the trial
  4. dAssessed by routine data collection from cohort data base
  5. eBaseline blood samples will be taken from previous cohort visits (no longer than 6 months) or during cohort and randomization visits at day 0
