50 years ago, Dr. Jonas Salk developed a vaccine that had the potential to eradicate polio, one of the most feared diseases in the world. Today, Dr. Salk's vaccine continues to do the job it was designed to do - protect all of us from a debilitating disease. To mark this important milestone, Canada Post will issue a single domestic rate (50c) stamp on September 2, 2005, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Canada's program of universal polio vaccination. The stamp will be unveiled at Sanofi Pasteur's Connaught Campus in Toronto on September 2.
