Abstract Now that SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) vaccines are developed, it is very important to plan its distribution strategy. In this paper, we formulated a multi-objective linear programming model to optimize vaccine distribution and applied it to the agent-based version of our age-stratified and quarantine-modified SEIR with non-linear incidence rates (ASQ-SEIR-NLIR) compartmental model. Simulations were performed using COVID-19 data from Quezon City and results were analyzed under various… Expand

Age-stratified Infection Probabilities Combined with Quarantine-Modified SEIR Model in the Needs Assessments for COVID-19
The age-stratified COVID-19 infection and death distributions from China is used as an estimate for a study area infection and morbidity probabilities at each age group, and a Q parameter is added to the classic SEIR compartmental model to include the effect of quarantine (Q-SEIR). Expand

Results suggest that a control strategy that involves maximizing and {varepsilon} is likely to be successful, although quarantine is still more effective in limiting the spread of the virus. Expand
Addressing the challenges to immunization practice with an economic algorithm for vaccine selection.
An economic algorithm is developed that would minimize the overall costs of disease control through immunization by considering the purchase price, number of doses needed, preparation time, route of administration, cold storage needs, shelf life, and efficacy of protection. Expand
Modeling the dynamics of COVID-19 using Q-SEIR model with age-stratified infection probability
The advantage of age-stratifying the population as an improvement on the quarantine-modified SEIR model is explored and it is hypothesized that this would project lower cases of infection for the Philippines because of the country's low median age. Expand

Utilizing Python for Agent-Based Modeling: The Mesa Framework
This paper presents Mesa’s design goals, along with its underlying architecture, and discusses how agent-based models can be created in Mesa, followed by a discussion of applications and extensions to demonstrate how Mesa design is decoupled and extensible and thus creating the opportunity for a larger decentralized ecosystem of packages.
