This paper proposes the Caputo Fractional Reduced Differential Transform Method (CFRDTM) for Susceptible-Exposed-Infected-Recovered (SEIR) epidemic model with fractional order in a host community. CFRDTM is the combination of the Caputo Fractional Derivative (CFD) and the well-known Reduced Differential Transform Method (RDTM). CFRDTM demonstrates feasible progress and efficiency of operation. The properties of the model were analyzed and investigated. The fractional SEIR epidemic model has been solved via CFRDTM successfully. Hence, CFRDTM provides the solutions of the model in the form of a convergent power series with easily computable components without any restrictive assumptions.
