The Effects of Vaccination in a Core Group

This study examines a mathematical model in which a vaccine without complete effectiveness is applied to a core group. The prevalence of the disease within the core group determines the recruitment rate into the core group. The recruitment function in this model is set up for the case dependent on the proportion of infectious individuals. In particular, we study the possible oscillations of the disease over time caused by the vaccination rate and vaccine efficiency.
