Two separate models are developed for predicting the effectiveness of alternative Rubella vaccination policies. A simple mathematical steady-state model is used to predict long-term consequences and a more complex dynamic computer-simulation model is used in order to predict shorter-term results. The dynamic model takes account of population heterogeneities of the transmission rate, as well as secular changes, together with varying levels of efficacy/uptake, different possibilities of vaccine… CONTINUE READING
