Modeling vaccines and AMR

Vaccination is an important weapon in our arsenal in the fight against AMR. Mathematical models are used to understand both AMR transmission and to predict the healthcare impact of vaccination strategies. However there are relatively few studies that quantify the effect of vaccines on AMR dynamics. Our work addresses this gap in our understanding to further our knowledge on how best to quantify the impact of vaccines on AMR and how to integrate these models into public health decision making for vaccines.
