individuals in smaller populations is found to be considerably higher than that of larger populations
in simulations in which there are no, or very few, non-local contacts.
All vaccination methods are shown to lower the value of Ro0 and the proportion of the infected
population, but no single policy is determined to be significantly more effective than the others.
Alternatively, a vaccination policy based on low contact is consistently found to be less effective
than the other policies. Implementation in real life is often related to random vaccination, low
contact vaccination, or a combination thereof. Under the specific circumstances of this study, there
is no substantial gain in changing this policy.
