OLD VERSION. Kept for backwards compatibility. Vaccinate most highly connected individuals

Vaccinate most highly connected individuals

Begin NetLogo code:
substitute-text-area-for time-of-vaccination 1
substitute-text-area-for number-vaccinated the-fraction-vaccinated * the-initial-susceptible-population

do-at-time time-of-vaccination
   [let population-sorted 
        sort-by [[count link-neighbors] of ?1 > [count link-neighbors] of ?2] 
        round number-vaccinated
        [let super-node first population-sorted
         set population-sorted but-first population-sorted
         add-behaviours-to super-node 
                           list-of-micro-behaviours "Intervention behaviours" []]]
End NetLogo code


Edit the text areas to change the time the vaccinations are performed and the number of individuals vaccinated.

Related behaviours

Schedule non-targeted vaccination does not target the highly connected individuals.

How this works

This sorts the entire population by the number of acquaintances and adds the Intervention behaviours to the first number-vaccinated.


This was implemented by Ken Kahn on 3 February 2011.
