City Infection Model with Vaccine

This extends the City Infection Model to include an agent which introduces a vaccine at time step vaccination_step defined in globals.json.

This extends the City Infection Model to include an agent which introduces a vaccine at time step vaccination_step defined in globals.json.

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.

When vaccine_uptake is 0.7, most of the susceptible population still contracts the disease.

Comparing a 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.
