This paper relies on a minimum-time vaccination control strategy for a class of epidemic models. A targeted state final value is defined as a certain accuracy closed ball around some point being a reasonable approximate measure of both disease-free equilibrium points associated with the two vaccination levels used for the optimal-time control.
