Network structure quantitatively impacts the results, but general conclusions stand. In a and b, we display the outbreak size and in c and d the vaccination coverage as functions of the rate of infection for two different network structures. a and c pertain to the square lattice with a periodic boundary, whereas b and d pertain to the Erdős–Rényi network of the average degree \(k=2\). Our observation that a longer memory length decreases the outbreak size as the rate of infection increases is valid irrespective of the network structure. Quantitative differences between networks arise because the lattice has a large diameter that impedes outbreaks given the same infection rate. Initial conformism is \(c=0.50\). The number of nodes is \(N = 64\)
