Weekly data released yesterday (April 22) by NHS England showed 57% of people aged between 45-49 have been jabbed in Milton Keynes' Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

The data shows that 57% of 45-49-year-olds in the Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes (BLMK) CCG have received a first dose of a vaccine protecting against Covid.

People in this age group were invited to book appointments for vaccinations last week, and have been jabbed at speed according to the latest figures.
