We present survival lifetime models for vaccination, recovery and disease related deaths in a class of SVIS (Susceptible-Vaccinated-Infectious-Susceptible) epidemic models. We consider competing risks for the vaccination strategy in a parallel survival lifetime system. Applying a probability modeling approach for the SVIS epidemic dynamics, we obtain a non-autonomous system of differential equations for the SVIS infectious disease dynamics, where the system coefficients are hazard functions of the lifetime distributions. By employing the asymptotic properties of the hazard functions, we characterize the asymptotic steady state behaviors of the SVIS model. Applications of this study are given for an influenza epidemic in Georgia, U.S.A.
