Supplementary Material

Here we provide more details on the methods of data collection, mathematical equations used in the model formulation, and computational algorithms used in the simulations. We also provide information on the baseline parameters used in the simulations, as well as additional simulations results to demonstrate the sensitivity of model predictions to changes in baseline parameter values, including the vaccination studies. Finally, we provide daily resolution incidence data of the weekly resolution incidence data reported in the main text.
