Theory and Modeling for Time Required to Vaccinate a Population in an Epidemic

Taejin Lee, Kurien Thomas, Arni S R Rao

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

We theoretically understand time required to vaccinate against viruses in the total population as well as subpopulations in a country. We have proved novel theorems for the time functions defined in the chapter. Such results are useful in managing vaccine programs at the time of severe epidemic in a country with sizable population. As a demonstration, a model-based estimate for time required to vaccinate H1N1 in India, given its administrative setup is provided.
