Join our Jabs Army super-volunteers and help in the fight against Covid

JABS Army volunteers with hundreds of shifts under their belts have encouraged Sun readers to join them to help with the vaccinations blitz.

These amazing stewards have been the backbone of our drive since it began in January.

They marshal car parks, help to keep queues moving, wipe down chairs and provide a friendly face.

He said: “I was born in Syria and had to run away. This country’s looked after me. I wanted to give back and show Muslim doesn’t mean terror.”

Widower Barrie Church, 79, has completed 110 shifts.

He said: “It helps others, makes you feel good and gives you a huge sense of purpose.”

Trevor Henderson, 61, of Peterborough, has completed 114 shifts.

He said: “Once we’re all double vaccinated we can go clubbing — which in my case means the golf course.”

Nearly 66,000 readers have volunteered.

But with jabs now offered to 16 and 17-year-olds, many areas are in need of help, including Bradford and Coventry.
