Abstract In this paper, we analyze the effects of vaccination from a spatial perspective. We propose a spatial deterministic SIRS-V model, which considers a non-linear system of partial differential equations with explicit attrition and diffusion terms for the vaccination process. The model allows us to simulate numerically the spatial and temporal dynamics of an epidemic, considering different spatial strategies for the vaccination policy. In particular, in our first example we analyze the classical SIRS-V evolution with the addition of movements due to diffusion, while in the second one we focus on modeling one ring vaccination policy. We expect this model can improve spatial predictions of SIR vaccination models by taking into account the spatial dimension of the problem. (C) 2020 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
