Covid jabs in Leeds: Here are the areas where the fewest people are fully vaccinated against coronavirus

Four-fifths of the UK population is now fully vaccinated against Covid-19, with a booster programme announced for the over-50s this week.

England's deputy chief medical officer, Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, said the UK has had one of the world’s most successful Covid-19 vaccination programmes.

Vaccines have averted 24 million cases and saved an estimated 112,000 lives, he told a Downing Street press conference.

Covid infection rates have surged across England since children returned to the classroom.

Official figures from the UK Government show infection rates increased by 13 per cent between August 31 and September 7.

As of September 12, 81 per cent of people aged over 16 had received two doses of a vaccine, according to Public Health England.

However, there are areas of Leeds where a far smaller proportion of the population had had both jabs.

Here are the neighbourhoods with the fewest over-16s fully vaccinated.

The neighbourhoods are middle super layer output areas (MSOAs), small geographic units used in government statistics. All images are for illustrative purposes only.
