The approach of N Gay for estimating the coverage of a multivalent vaccine from antibody prevalence data in certain age cohorts is complemented by using computer aided elimination theory of variables. Hereby, Gay's usage of numerical approximation can be replaced by exact formulae which are surprisingly nice, too.
