“Dynamic Modeling to Estimate the Economic Impact of Increasing Influenza Vaccination in the United States,” by Tim Inocencio and Kathy Hughes.
- A dynamic transition model was developed to demonstrate the economic impact of increasing influenza vaccination rates among adults in the United States.
- This model incorporated age-based mixing rates and accounted for increases “herd immunity” as more individuals are vaccinated.
- The results demonstrate that increasing current influenza vaccination rates from 40 percent to 60 percent could save $4.5 billion in hospital, outpatient, and drug treatment costs, and is especially useful when supporting efforts to increase vaccination rates nationwide.
