Covid-19 vaccinations: how the four UK nations compare

·3 min read

A total of 31,908,103 second doses of Covid-19 vaccine have now been delivered in the UK, meaning the equivalent of 60.6% of adults are fully vaccinated.

Some 43,656,327 first doses have also been delivered – the equivalent of 82.9% of people aged 18 and over.

Vaccine take-up varies across the four nations of the UK, however, and also among different age groups.

Here are the latest figures:

– England

As of June 23, England has delivered 26,874,354 second doses of Covid-19 vaccine, meaning the equivalent of 60.7% of its adult population is fully vaccinated.

This places it behind Wales (62.3%) but ahead of Scotland (59.3%) and Northern Ireland (57.2%).

An estimated 82.6% of adults in England have received a first dose – behind both Wales and Scotland, but ahead of Northern Ireland.

The Government at Westminster has said it intends to offer a first dose to all adults in England by July 19.

Estimates for age groups in England have been published by NHS England and cover vaccinations up to June 20.

They show that 91.9% of people aged 80 and over are likely to have received both doses of vaccine, along with 97.8% of people aged 70 to 79, 94.0% of those aged 60 to 69 and 87.6% of people aged 50 to 59.

So far 47.0% of people aged 40 to 49 are estimated to be fully vaccinated.

Wales also leads the nations in first doses, with 89.0% of its adults estimated to have received at least one jab.

All adults in Wales have been offered a first dose of vaccine, according to the Welsh government.

Wales has managed to get more than 90% of people in all age groups 65 and over fully vaccinated, while 89.3% of people aged 60 to 64 are estimated to have had both doses.

As of 7.30am on June 24, Scotland has delivered 2,631,533 second doses of Covid-19 vaccine, meaning the equivalent of 59.3% of its adult population is fully vaccinated.

This places it third in the UK, behind Wales (62.3%) and England (60.7%) but ahead of Northern Ireland (57.2%).

An estimated 83.3% of adults in Scotland have received a first dose – behind Wales but ahead of England and Northern Ireland.
