Table 2 Parameter definitions for the Extended Model.

From: A simulation analysis to characterize the dynamics of vaccinating behaviour on contact networks

Parameter Meaning
α Payoff to a person who remains susceptible today
L Payoff to a person who has acquired immunity, either through vaccine or through infection and who did not experience long-term complications from vaccine or infection
n inf Number of infectious neighbors for an individual on a given day
m inf Number of infectious neighbors' neighbors for an individual on a given day
λ Probability per day of an individual becoming infected by infectious neighbors
λ perc Perceived probability per day of an individual becoming infected by infectious neighbors
ϑ perc Perceived probability per day of an individual becoming infected by infectious neighbors' neighbors
ρ Probability with which an individual will vaccinate today if her/his P V > P N today
1/ι Duration of the latent period for an infectious individual in the extended model
1/κ Duration of the latent period for a vaccinated individual in the extended model
