A fractional MSEIR model is presented, involving the Caputo fractional derivative. The equilibrium points and the basic reproduction number are computed. An analysis of the local asymptotic stability at the disease free equilibrium is given. Finally a numerical simulation, using Matlab based on optimization techniques, of the varicella outbreak among Shenzhen school children, China, is carried out.
