There are dozens of Kent neighbourhoods where vaccine rates are lagging behind the national average.

As of today (July 24), 87.9 per cent of the UK population had received their first dose of the COVID-19 jab.

However, there are still scores of neighbourhoods across Kent that fall well short of this target.

Some neighbourhoods, especially in Canterbury, are among the least vaccinated in the south east.

Blean Forest, Chartham Hatch & University is the Kent neighbourhood with the lowest uptake of the first vaccine dose.

Just 56.9 per cent of people in the neighbourhood have had their first vaccination, compared to an average of 87.9 per cent across the whole of the UK.

That means that less than two thirds of the expected number of people in the region have been jabbed at least once.

The lowest uptake in the south of England has been in Tidenham & Woolaston in Gloucestershire, where just 31.9 per cent of people have had their first jab.

The number of COVID infections in Kent has rocketed in recent weeks, with many parts of the county now above the national average infection rate.

With 87.9 per cent of the population now having received at least one jab, the vaccine program looks to have been a relative success.

However, there are still huge portions of the county still lagging behind the national average vaccine uptake for the first jab.
