It’s the beginning of the end, as the initial batches of Covid-19 vaccines have rolled out. This week, Americans will begin receiving vaccinations.

This would not have happened without Operation Warp Speed - and it is something we can all relish.

Staying Alive to Stay Alive
Vaccines are in limited supply, and it will take some time before the nation reaches what scientists call herd immunity.
