Yet the fact that hundreds of pop-up vaccine centres will be operating this week – and even buses commandeered to reach the housebound – is testament to the agility of the NHS in its desire to inoculate young adults at this time.
A logistical exercise on a different scale to the early phases of the vaccine rollout last December, it is a tribute to the professionalism of all the NHS staff – and volunteers – who are giving up their weekends.
And, in return, this newspaper, for one, hopes it can count on its readers to double-check that their youngfolk have been jabbed and, if not, to give them a gentle reminder or word of encouragement. For, the sooner the whole country is vaccinated, the sooner Britain can return to normal. It’s that fundamental.
