Tynan DeBold and Dov Friendman, from The Wall Street Journal, published interactive heat maps that illustrate case frequency of seven major vaccine preventable diseases in the United States using Project Tycho data. Case counts are available for all 50 states. By marking when a vaccine was introduced, the visualizations depict that following the introduction of vaccines has led to a reduction of cases of measles, hepatitis A, mumps, pertussis (whooping cough), polio, and rubella, as well as the eradication of smallpox.

The number of infected people, measured over 70-some years and across all 50 states and the District of Columbia, generally declined after vaccines were introduced. The heat maps below show number of cases per 100,000 people.
