This paper investigates an susceptible, infectious, recovered (SIR) model with childhood vaccination demand modeled as a function of prior levels of disease prevalence. Stability conditions for endemic and disease-free equilibria are uncovered, and both Hopf bifurcations and chaos are found with certain constellations of parameter values. Policy interventions directed toward increasing vaccination are explored, and the implied magnitudes of the external benefit of vaccination are modeled.
