A huge relief.
And The Sun’s Jabs Army recruits will ensure it’s rolled out smoothly and safely.
More top firms have signed up to our effort, as have two ex-Prime Ministers.
But there is no glossing over the deaths, infections and patients swamping our hospitals.
Next week, maybe, the lockdown will start to cut these terrible tolls.
All we can do is sit tight, minimise our risk, and remember life will get better.

Starmer’s job just got much harder.
WERE it not for Covid, Babs Windsor would have had the huge send-off she deserved.
But no vast throng lined the streets.
National treasure Dame Barbara Windsor should have had a huge send-off
Just the 30 hand-picked close friends legally allowed to attend — and a few well-wishers outside.

What a star you were.
