Alternative selection of vaccination strategy has become a challenging task for the public health, and it is considered as a complex decision making problem. Decision makers often use linguistic variables to rate the alternatives. The objective of this research is to use fuzzy logic based VIKOR method for evaluating H1N1 Influenza vaccination strategies. The experimental design of the proposed decision making model is illustrated with a case study in Vellore, Tamil Nadu, India. The alternative of a vaccination strategy considered in this study includes the combination of “people”, “spatial” and “temporal”. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.
