Covid vaccines: These are the areas in Fylde with the lowest and highest vaccine uptake
Since the UK’s vaccination programme started in December more than 23 million people have received their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.
Official figures from NHS England now reveal how many people have been vaccinated in neighbourhoods across the country.
In Fylde 35,729 people had received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine between December 8, 2020 and March 7, 2021, including 16,571 over 70s.
In December the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) advised that care home residents should be prioritised for a vaccine to prevent further deaths, followed by over 80s, over 75s and then over 70s. This was alongside healthcare staff.
The uptake varies across neighbourhoods though.
Here we reveal which areas in Fylde have vaccinated the lowest and highest percentage of their population.
