Our vaccination centres are being superbly run, thanks not least to The Sun’s own Jabs Army.
Boris Johnson experienced all this first-hand today when he had his own Oxford shot. As he did so it was revealed we had hit a staggering new daily record of 660,276 doses.
Imagine it: Almost one per cent of the UK population protected in one day.
Our rollout leads the world — and gives us hope of being the first major Western nation to emerge from the Covid hell.
That, and our own mental health, will be helped enormously as rules are torn up next month to allow 9,000 more pubs and restaurants to reopen by throwing up Covid-secure marquees and gazebos to serve punters outdoors.
What unalloyed joy, after the misery of this locked-down winter.

The only wrinkle is this: Can we trust our liberal judges to apply it?
A NEW rub-on gel arouses fellas six times faster than Viagra.
Which is a proud boast. But one thought does pop up.
Is this the drug doing the work?
Or the application?
