The new aim is to give a booster jab to all adults by the end of the month.

Latest available data from NHS England shows almost 27.2 million people aged 18 and over have still not had a booster dose, including thousands of people in Scarborough borough.

According to the latest Government data, 52 per cent of people aged 12 and over in the Scarborough Borough have now had a Covid booster jab, second in North Yorkshire only to Hambleton, 53.5 per cent, and above the England average of 36.2 per cent.

To hit the Government’s new target an estimate 2,165 jabs will need to be administered in Scarborough borough each day between Monday December 13 and the end of the year to hit the target.

The analysis is based on the number of days between Monday December 13 and the end of the year so figures are estimates.

Population analysis is based on figures sourced from the Office for National Statistics and are estimates.

There are geographical differences across Scarborough borough with some areas having administered far fewer booster shots than other areas.
