This paper presents the optimal control applied to a non-linear mathematical SIVR epidemic model. To investigate optimal control strategy of the SIVR model to minimize the infection in minimum cost is discussed with help of three controls and are derived and analyzed by considering different objective functions with the same control variables in all strategies. It is demonstrated by the analytical findings, the effect of choosing different objective function on the state variables with the help of numerical results. This study show that different strategies using different objective functions for an epidemic results in a significant effect to slow down the epidemic.
