People wearing Project Tycho tie & scarf

Project Tycho® scarves and ties have been distributed to advance vaccination programs. In response to many positive comments on stunning heatmap visualizations of the decline of childhood diseases in the United States after vaccination programs, we have decided to create scarves and ties that depict this pattern. Vaccination programs are not widely accepted despite their overwhelming impact. Recently, it appeared that vaccination rates among children in wealthy schools in Los Angeles are similar to those in South Sudan. We have distributed these scarves and ties to vaccine advocates around the world and are now actively seeking mechanisms for expansion to a larger audience.
