Abstract: -A new susceptible-infected-susceptible model is researched in this paper, which has an infective vector. And it describes epidemics (e.g. malaria) transmitted through an infective vector (e.g. mosquitoes) on complex networks. We compare the modified model with the standard SIS model having an infective vector. We also study and compare the effects of the uniform immunization and targeted immunization on complex networks. Then, analytical and simulated results are given to show that the uniform immunization strategy to the modified model is very effective on scale-free networks.
