London has among lowest rates of booster jabs in England

Covid-19 vaccine rates in London remain among the lowest in the country, new data has revealed, at almost 10 per cent below the national average in certain age groups.

According to most recent data from NHS England, the capital lags behind other areas in all but two age categories, 18-24 — with 74.2 per cent of those people having had their first dose — and 25-29, with 81.4 per cent having had the initial jab.

Some 2.5 million Londoners are still yet to have their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

It comes after the NHS announced that over 400 vaccination hubs will be opened this weekend in a bid to speed up booster jabs to fight the new omicron variant.

The lowest take-up is in Tower Hamlets, east London, where only 34.6 per cent of over-50s are estimated to have had either a booster or third dose.

After Stratford-upon-Avon (76.3 per cent) and Hart in Hampshire (75.4 per cent), the areas with the highest take-up are Warwick (74.1 per cent), Hertsmere in Hertfordshire (73.5 per cent) and Horsham in West Sussex (73.5 per cent).

It comes as the Government has said all eligible adults in England aged 18 and over will be offered a booster dose by the end of January.

The time between a second dose and a booster is also being reduced from six months to three.

The figures were compiled by the PA news agency from NHS England data for vaccinations given up to November 28.
