U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature for August 17
Date:8/16/2014

WASHINGTON, Aug. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:

IMMUNIZATION MONTH

Profile America — Sunday, August 17th. Although the numbers have fallen sharply in the last few decades, still some people in the U.S. succumb to diseases that could have been prevented by immunization. Others experience pain, suffering and disability. That's why this is National Immunization Awareness Month — highlighting the importance of vaccinations to a long and healthy life. The process of vaccination was known even in ancient cultures. Its most spectacular success came in the eradication of smallpox, a human scourge for thousands of years. The last known natural case was diagnosed in Somalia in 1977. In the U.S., pharmaceutical manufacturing is a nearly $200 billion dollar a year business. You can find current data on the country's economy by downloading the America's Economy mobile application at www.census.gov/mobile.
