Great! Hopefully we can do more of this to all overseas territories. Presume smaller places will have to wait until we get Oxford Vaccine in bigger numbers. St Helena and Falklands next?

Biden said that development of the vaccine should be slowed when he was campaigning last year and that he doesn’t trust it, yet he was one of the first people in the world to demand and get it. What a wanker.
