OUR vaccination programme is the envy of the world.
By Monday, if not before, the Government will have hit its target of jabbing 15million of the most vulnerable.

Ministers will also tour the country to persuade those from ethnic minorities to ignore dangerous myths spreading online and be immunised.
It’s all been a triumph of British spirit, willing, knowledge and ingenuity.
How sickening, then, to see Cromwell Street monster Rose West getting her vaccine early.
It is bad enough that she received it a week before the vast majority of over 65s.
But West, 67, also got it, in large part, because she is now morbidly obese having been allowed to stuff her face for years in her comfortable cell.
The underlying health issues which got her to the front of the jab queue are more likely than not the result of her own selfishness and greed.
West joined her husband in the systematic rape and murder of ten young women, including her own daughter.
We cannot think of a woman less deserving of the state’s protection.
It is a double travesty of justice.
Heed GDP, PM
THE R-rate is now confirmed to be at less than one and infections and hospitalisations are also substantially down on last month’s desperate figures.
At the same time Chancellor Rishi Sunak warns of a fall in GDP of nearly 10 per cent.
That is the biggest shrinking of the economy since the Great Frost of 1709 wiped out crops in the harshest winter ever seen.
And it’s the one number Boris Johnson should keep in mind when others are bandied about by the Sage scientists urging him to adopt a zero-Covid strategy.
Predictions are one thing.
Many of those have been wrong anyway.
But this collapse in the UK economy is already a dire cast iron fact that cannot be allowed to get worse.
Our nation of traders and shopkeepers must be allowed to re-open as soon as possible.
No delays, no wobbling.
Because every week that passes means dozens more businesses going to the wall.
We cannot eradicate this virus.
We have to learn to live with it.
And that includes us making a living, too.

SPARE a thought this week for our brilliant Jabs Army volunteers.
Out there all day in snow and freezing temperatures, they’ve been manning vaccination centres with a cheery smile and words of comfort for the elderly.
The least The Sun could do is to arrange with our friends at Deliveroo to provide some hot grub.
And the least we can all do as a nation is to say a warm and heartfelt thankyou to each and every one of them.
