For the 1.2.1 release, we announce the availability of interventions in STEM. Interventions are used to control some aspect of a disease outbreak, down to regional level if desired. Examples include initiating a vaccination program, isolating infected individuals, implementing social distancing, evacuation of a region, shutting down air transportation (for a county, state or a whole country), closing a road or preventing mixing of infected individuals across borders. Interventions can be triggered either after a fixed number of days have elapsed in a simulation, or when some critical threshold is reached, for instance when the daily incidence in a region surpasses the threshold.

A fairly detailed tutorial on interventions are available on the STEM wiki:

You can also download an example scenario with a vaccination and evacuation intervention strategy:
