NHS England has for the first time published COVID-19 vaccination data for each area of the country.
The new data shows that up to February 21, 138,685 people in Cumbria had received a vaccine against COVID-19.
It is estimated that the population of Cumbria was 500,000 in mid-2019, using those figures it means roughly 27.74 per cent of the county has been vaccinated.
Here are the figures broken down by constituency, using ONS population data from 2019:
- Barrow – 25,776 (29.7 per cent of the population)
- Carlisle – 27,850 (32.07 per cent of the population)
- Copeland – 27,054 (34.61 per cent of the population)
- Penrith and the Border – 27,522 (33.2 per cent of the population)
- Westmorland and Lonsdale – 30,483 (35.71 per cent of the population)
In total, more than 19.3 million doses have been administered to more than 18.6 million people across the United Kingdom – equivalent to 1 in 3 adults.
The vaccine programme is averaging more than 2.5 million doses a week, with new targets to offer the vaccine to everyone in the top nine priority groups by April 15, and the rest of the adult population by the end of July.
