This extends the City Infection Model to include an agent which introduces a vaccine at time step
vaccination_step defined in
People agents have a likelihood of
vaccine_uptake to become vaccinated. By modifying the
vaccine_uptake rate, we can demonstrate the effects "anti-vax" misinformation in reducing the impact a vaccine could have in stopping an infection.
vaccine_uptake is 0.7, most of the susceptible population still contracts the disease.
vaccine_uptake of 0.7 with 0.95, almost double the population becomes infected, from 7% to 15%. This is also dependent on the timestep at which the vaccine is introduced.
Individual behaviors in this simulation have been published independently, including:
