Almost 90% of over 70s in Milton Keynes have now had both doses of the coronavirus vaccine, according to figures released by the NHS today (29/04).
The data covers the period up to 25th April and shows there have been 44,776 second doses across the whole of MK so far with 167,355 doses in total delivered since the start of the vaccination programme.
It also shows 94% of over 45s have now had at least one dose of the COVID vaccine, while almost 60% of people aged over 16 in Milton Keynes have also received a dose as the vaccination programme moves down through the age brackets.
This means an extra 4,872 people received a first dose of the vaccine across Milton Keynes in the last week.
Ben Everitt, the MP for Milton Keynes North, commented: "It's brilliant to see the vaccination programme continues to make great progress as we ramp up first doses by vaccinating people in their 40s and continue to make great strides in giving second doses.
"Vaccines are our route to freedom and every jab gives us hope. When it's your turn to have the vaccine - whether that's a first or second dose - please accept the call."
