Over 90 per cent of over 80s in Lincolnshire now had their first dose of Covid vaccine

The latest NHS England figures show over 90 per cent of over 80s have had their first dose of the Covid vaccine and that nearly 130,000 doses have been administered in Lincolnshire.

The weekly data released on Thursday shows 127,606 jabs between December 8 and January 31 – up by 40,206 on last week.

The data doesn’t include the new vaccination centre at the Lincolnshire Showground opened on Tuesday, which aims to do over 1,000 doses a day.

The Showground centre is the second largest in the county, with the one at Princess Arena Sports Centre in Boston able to handle over 1,500 vaccines per day.

The figures show show 81,663 people under the age of 80 have received their first vaccination and another 1,321 have been given their second.

Some 43,035 people aged over 80 have received their first dose, with a further 1,587 receiving a second jab.

This means that 92.5% of all over 80s in the county have received the first dose of a COVID vaccine.

As previously reported, most over 65s at 202 Lincolnshire care homes have had or been offered the vaccine.

North and North East Lincolnshire are included in the Humber, Coast and Vale figures. In total in that area there have been 295,369 vaccines given, but more local detail is unavailable.

People will be called on by their GPs to book a vaccine appointment when it’s available in their area.
