Official figures from NHS England now reveal how many people have been vaccinated in neighbourhoods across the country.

In Sheffield, 191,165 people had received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine between 8th December 2020 and 14th March 2021 including 67,662 over 70s.

In December the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) advised that care home residents should be prioritised for a vaccine to prevent further deaths, followed by over 80s, over 75s and then over 70s. This was alongside healthcare staff.

The uptake varies across neighbourhoods though.

Here we reveal which areas in Sheffield have given at least one vaccination dose to more than half of their adult populations.
