A permanent ‘Army of Jabs’ will be deployed across the country shortly in the event a new variant emerges.

“The Jabs Army can prepare the country for future waves of infections.
“I am proud to support The Sun’s Jabs Army campaign.
“The Conservative Government’s approach at every stage of the pandemic has been chaotic and indecisive.
