We describe and analyze compartmental models for influenza, including pre-epidemic vaccination and antiviral treatment. The analysis is based on the final size relation for compartmental epidemic models. We consider models of increasing complexity and compare their predictions using parameter values appropriate to the 1957 pandemic.
