Table 2 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 Tajikistan with WPV1 imported on November 1, 2009 (top) and the hypothetical alternative reference case with WPV1 imported on December 1, 2009 (bottom) (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 2010 oSIAs (in years), by round Dates (vaccines) of 2010 oSIAs, by round Target age groups of 2009 pSIA(s) Dates (vaccines) of 2009 pSIA(s) (in years), by round Paralytic cases prevented, 2010 [%] Reduction in WPV1 re-interruption time (days) Additional vaccine doses administered (millions)
