A total of 82,745 Islanders have now got an element of protection against COVID-19 after receiving a first dose of the vaccine, officials figures reveal.
NHS England data shows that 82,745 first doses have been administered across the Isle of Wight to date with a further 6,246 second doses given. Those who received their COVID jab around 12 weeks ago are now being invited in for their second jab to offer the best protection against the coronavirus as possible.
Today’s news means that around 60% of the Island’s entire population – 69% of the 16+ population – have now received a COVID-19 vaccination including 97.9% of the Over 80s, 94.1% of those aged 70-74 and 100% of those 75-79.
10,870 doses were given out between 14th-21st March.
Across the Island, Yarmouth and Freshwater have the highest number of people who have received at least their first dose 7,339, more than double the lowest area on the Island, Newport Central and Parkhurst West where only 3,395 have had their first vaccine.
