DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Soyoung Kim (Konkuk University)\nIn this talk\, we w
ill present a mathematical model of 2009 A/H1N1 influenza considering age
structure in the Republic of Korea and suggest vaccination strategies for
mitigating the epidemics. There were 750\,000 confirmed cases of 2009 A/H1
N1 influenza from May 2009 and August 2010. Because influenza viruses are
spread through close contact\, contact pattern plays an important role fo
r the disease spread. We developed an age-dependent SEIAR model. The total
population is divided into five subgroups and age-specific transmission r
ates are estimated based on laboratory confirmed data from Korea Centers f
or Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC). Vaccination policies is importan
t to minimize the number of infected individuals especially when the vacci
ne supply is limited. Using mathematical model\, we could assess the impac
t of the age-dependent vaccination priority on transmission dynamics.\n\nh
