Three London neighborhoods have lowest adolescent vaccination rates – .


TThree London neighborhoods have the lowest Covid vaccine use among young adolescents in England, according to the latest figures.

Only 3.5% of people aged 12 to 15 received their first dose at Barking & Dagenham while the rate is only 5.2% in Newham and Lewisham.

Meanwhile, only 15 authorities in England have managed to give at least a quarter of 12 to 15 year olds a first blow.
Richmond upon Thames has the highest adolescent vaccination rate in London at 25.8%. Next come 25% in Harrow and 22.1% in Barnet.
The situation is very different in Scotland where take-up is already above 50% in half of the municipalities.
Almost a month ago, the first doses of the Covid-19 vaccine began to be distributed to all 3.2 million children aged 12 to 15 in the UK.
But the figures for England and Scotland – the two countries currently publishing daily attendance statistics – show wide variation from country to country.
In Scotland, 16 of 32 local authorities have now administered a first dose to at least 50% of every 12 to 15 years, with Dumfries & Galloway having the highest use (62.9%) followed by Perth & Kinross (62.6 %) and the Orkney Islands (62.1%).
The participation rate among 12-15 year olds for Scotland as a whole now stands at 46.5%, compared to just 15.0% in England.
The first doses of the Covid-19 vaccine for young adolescents are administered in different ways in the two countries.
