Farmers’ willingness to vaccinate against endemic animal diseases: A theoretical approach

The aim of this paper is to propose an analytical framework to explore farmers’ vaccination decisions against endemic animal diseases. First, a theoretical model is developed to highlight how the characteristics of the vaccine influence the farmer’s vaccination decisions over time and the resulting disease dynamics. Numerical simulations are then performed to illustrate the impacts of the different vaccine effectiveness parameters on these dynamics.
