Three Peterborough areas have 90% uptake for first Covid vaccine doses - but there is still a long way to go for some parts of the city.

Millfield has the lowest percentage of fully vaccinated people, Orton West and Castor has the highest

The most recent data, up to August 8, shows that a quarter of Peterborough's 23 Middle Layer Super Output Areas (MSOAs) have seen less than 50% of the population get their second vaccine dose.

Two areas - Peterborough Central and Millfield and Bourges Boulevard - have yet to hit 50% uptake for first doses.

Only four areas have three-quarters of the population fully vaccinated, none of which are in the city centre.

MSOAs are geographic units designed to improve the reporting of small area statistics in England and Wales, with an average of 7,000 people per MSOA. If you're unsure of which your local area falls under, see the Public Health England interactive map.

In Peterborough, the latest figures show that as of August 10, nearly 69% of people have had their first dose of a vaccine.

Around 56% of people are considered fully vaccinated, having had both doses.

This is well down from the national average, which shows that across the UK 89% of people have had one dose and 75% have had two.

Acknowledging the milestone, health secretary Sajid Javid said: “Three in four adults across the UK have now had both doses of the vaccine, which is incredible and a testament to the fantastic work of the NHS, volunteers and everyone involved in the roll-out.

“Getting two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine is the key to enjoying a host of new freedoms safely – whether that be to enjoy a trip abroad with family or a night out with friends – as we continue to build our wall of protection.

“The vaccines are allowing us to reconnect with the things we love, but more than that, they’re protecting the people we love too.

“Please make sure to come forward for your jab if you haven’t already as soon as possible.”

The #DoTheRightThing campaign, aimed at bringing Peterborough's vaccination levels in line with the rest of the country in order to protect residents, is being pushed by local leaders to bring the numbers up in and around the city.
