SIRV, COVID-19, Model, Vaccine, Outbreak, Pandemic

Abstract [English]

In this paper, we propose a modified SIR model with the consideration of vaccinated individuals called SIRV. We provide a proof that the model’s solution is non-negative and derive the model reproduction number and steady state. Finally, we apply the model to analyze COVID -19 pandemic in Saudi Arabia over the last three years.
