Salk and Sabin honored on definitives

Drs. Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin are being recognized by the Postal Service today with the nationwide release of definitive stamps in their honor.

Salk and Sabin were awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977 for their independent work in developing the first safe and effective vaccines against polio.

As part of the Distinguished Americans stamp series, Salk will be featured on a 63-cent stamp and Sabin will be featured on an 87-cent stamp. Both stamps will be sold in pressure-sensitive adhesive panes of 20.
