Abstract
Using an Ebola virus disease transmission model, we found that addition of ring vaccination at the outset of the West Africa epidemic might not have led to containment of this disease. However, in later stages of the epidemic or outbreaks with less intense transmission or more effective control, this strategy could help eliminate the disease.
