NHS figures show that two in five people Northumberland residents have received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.

By May 9 104,822 people had received both jabs, 39% of the county's population aged 16 and over, according to the latest population estimates from the Office for National Statistics.

50% of those aged 40 and over have received both jabs – 95,830 people - while another 8,992 people between 16 and 39 years old have received both doses.

Across Northumberland, 74% of people aged 16 and over have had one jab.

Despite the high percentages of residents who have received both jabs in Northumberland, 12% of care home staff in the county have not received either of their injections. The Government is currently in consultation over plans to make the jab mandatory for staff over concerns for residents.

Across England, 15 million people had received both doses of the Coronavirus vaccine by May 9 – roughly one third of the population.
