Modelling the transmission and control strategies of varicella in Shenzhen

Description: 

Varicella (chickenpox) is a highly transmissible childhood disease. Between 2010 and 2015,it displayed two epidemic waves annually among school populations in Shenzhen, China. However, their transmission dynamics remain unclear and there is no school-based vaccination programme in Shenzhen to-date. In this study, we developed a mathematical model to compare a school-based vaccination intervention scenario with a baseline (i.e. no intervention)scenario.

Objective:

To modell the transmission dynamics of varicella among school children in Shenzhen,to determine the effect of the school-based vaccination intervention.
