Table 3 Details of scenarios and estimates of the number of paralytic cases prevented, reduction of time until WPV elimination by serotype, and vaccine doses administered compared to the reference case for northern India (see Additional file 1 and Duintjer Tebbens et al. (2013)[20] for other model assumptions fixed across all scenarios)

From: The potential impact of expanding target age groups for polio immunization campaigns

Expanded age group scenario Target age groups of 2008 SIAs (in years), by round Paralytic cases prevented, 2008–2012 (WPV1&3) [%] Reduction in WPV elimination time (days)        Additional vaccine doses administered (millions)
