Covid vaccine - one year on: London boroughs among worst for jab rates

NURSE GIVING BOOSTER JAB

Here is the number and rate of Covid jabs in your London borough - Credit: PA

On December 8 last year, 90-year-old Margaret Keenan received a Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine at University Hospital in Coventry.

It was the first Covid vaccine administered in the UK - and the world, outside of clinical trials, according to the government.

One year on, more than 50 million people across the UK have received at least one dose of a vaccine.

More than 118,630,000 jabs have been administered in total when counting all doses, according to government figures.

But how many people in your borough have had first, second and third or booster jabs?

Here's a breakdown of the number of doses administered; the percentage of people who have had each jab, and where this percentage ranks out of 315 local authorities across England (with 1 being the highest).

The figures outlined cover those aged 12 and older, and are calculated up to last Sunday, December 5:

A number of east and north boroughs were ranked among the worst local authorities nationally for jabs as a percentage of population.

However, they ranked significantly higher for the numbers of jabs administered, due to the large populations in these boroughs.

For example, Tower Hamlets was the worst ranked local authority for the percentage of the population who have received third jabs and in the bottom 12 for both first and second dose rates.

But it was in the top 40 nationally for both the number of first and second jabs administered.
