MORE than 1m people in our region have now received their first dose of the Covid vaccine – almost a year after the country went into the first lockdown.
Official figures for all 14 local authority areas in the North-East and North Yorkshire have shown how the vaccine rollout has been progressing.
It comes as the UK recorded its highest number of vaccines administered in a single day – 873,784 on Monday, almost one year after the first lockdown was declared.
But most recent data for the region, which shows how many 1st doses have been issued since December 8, 2020 and March 14, 2021, has been released.
It shows that across Tyne and Wear, Northumberland, County Durham, Darlington, Teesside, Hambleton and Richmondshire, 1,057,883 have had at least their 1st dose.
Although this figure may appear lower than previously reported, this is because the data only relates to doses given in those authority areas, and not by CCG or NHS region.
