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.
