Title: A Mathematical Model For Swine Flu 2009 With Vaccination
Author: Turk, Irfan
Abstract: H1N1 influenza is one of the deadliest diseases in human's history. Swine Flu 2009 is the same virus and it was named in 2009. Vaccination is of the most common ways to control a disease. We offer a new vaccination model with recommendations from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The entire population is divided into 4 different age groups: one group with no vaccination, one group with 2 doses of vaccination, and two groups with 1 dose of vaccination. We establish that higher levels of vaccination lead to greater savings of life. We also consider the effects of vaccination on the economy by comparing the number of infected people to different vaccination rates. We also consider a special case for office workers and nursing home persons to look at the aspects of the above mentioned effects. A set of numerical simulations is also presented to show these outcomes.
