Mass-vaccination campaigns are an important strategy in the global fight against poliomyelitis and measles. The large-scale logistics required for these mass immunisation campaigns magnifies the need for research into the effectiveness and optimal deployment of pulse vaccination. In order to better understand this control strategy, we propose a mathematical model accounting for the disease dynamics in connected regions, incorporating seasonality, environmental reservoirs and independent…

It is proposed that, in addition to direct fecal/oral transmission, birds may become infected by ingesting virions that have long persisted in the environment, and a new host–pathogen model is designed that combines within-season transmission dynamics, between-season migration and reproduction, and environmental variation.

The model incorporates into the classic Ross–MacDonald model two factors: disease latencies in both hosts and vectors, and dispersal of hosts between patches, which can be useful to health organizations at various levels for setting guidelines or making policies for travels.
