Comparing COVID-19 vaccine allocation strategies in India: A mathematical modelling study
Researchers used an expanded SEIR model with social contact matrices to assess age-specific vaccine allocation strategies in India. Prioritizing COVID-19 vaccine allocation for older populations led to the greatest relative reduction in deaths. Findings support global recommendations to prioritize -19 vaccines for older age groups. Optimal vaccine allocation strategies will depend on vaccine characteristics, the strength of non-pharmaceutical interventions.
