Threshold price for the oral vaccine at different levels of bait density and three distribution costs:cost-savings ratios for the expanding circles scenario Notes: Threshold price occurs at the point that the net present value of a vaccination program = $0. The distribution costs:cost-savings ratios are calculated on a per unit area basis, using the maximum cost-savings figures (i.e., savings resulting from avoiding an epizootic).
