Our design is dedicated to the courageous U.S.-led WHO team instrumental in this effort. It features the two most typical appearances of the virus, brick and horseshoe shaped, and is highlighted by images of the bifurcated needle used in the vaccination process.

A back-of-tie "Awareness Note" and a source citation are incorporated in the pattern design.
