Vaccination was always the only durable way out of the Covid debacle (Report, January 13). We must thank doctors and scientists who have delivered in record time. I was happy to give up my time to vaccinate for free including out of hours but couldn’t face giving up my time to complete the morale-sapping red tape to get there. Why it ends up on Matt Hancock’s desk reflects a cringing lack of intelligence and decision making. I am still available.
