    戦略はすべての人にとって完全に無料のように感じます (現在、英国のほぼすべての地域で事件が発生しています。) bosses confirmed infection rates fell by at least 12 per cent in every council area of the country during the week up to January 16.

    The sharpest drop off was in Wigan, which saw its case rate fall 59 からのパーセント 2,121 positive tests per 100,000 people in the previous seven-day spell to 867 あたり 100,000.

    全体, 36.7million third doses have now been dished out across the UK, と 80 per cent of eligible people fully protected against the virus.

    Britain’s rapid rolloutwhich has reached more people than any other country in Europehas been credited as one of the main causes of its low hospital and death numbers.

    The ONS data shows the second lowest uptake among ethnic groups was in Pakistanis, だけで 37.8 per cent of the group getting a booster.

    They were followed by black African Brits (37.9 パーセント) and people of Bangladeshi origin (46.4 パーセント).

    Indian Brits had the second highest uptake of any group, と 65.3 per cent receiving their third jab by the end of the year.

    Hindus had the second highest uptake numbers (70 パーセント) of religious groups, followed by Christians (66.9 パーセント), atheists (65 パーセント) and Sikhs (62 パーセント).

    Third vaccination coverage was higher among people whose main language was English (66.6 パーセント) than those who did not have English as their main language (45.5 パーセント).

    Poorer people were more likely to be triple-jabbed than the wealthy.

    Seven in 10 (73 パーセント) of people living in the least deprived areas in the country have had a booster, に比べ 54.3 per cent in the most deprived.

    Covid deaths in the second wave were up to five times higher in Bangladeshi Brits than white adults in England, while black Africans were 3.7 times as likely to die in the first wave.

    Official breakdowns have not yet been released for ethnic outcomes from the Omicron wave, but experts fear lower booster uptake in some groups could put them at greater risk from the virus — despite the overall lower danger posed by the variant.

    Ministers last week announced communities lagging behind in uptake will be targeted with a share of the £22million of funding earmarked for the Community Vaccine Champions scheme.

    より多い 60 councils including Bradford, Derby and Newham will be supported with bespoke projects to jab hard to reach groups.

    Communities minister Kemi Badenoch said: ‘In England more than 80 per cent of eligible adults over 18 have had a booster and for over 50s it is 90 パーセント.

    ‘This is a great take-up so far, but we need to do more as we know that the unvaccinated are up to eight times more likely to be hospitalised than those who are jabbed.

    ‘By funding Community Vaccine Champions — an army of volunteers who are at the heart of their communities — we can reach those yet to be vaccinated and encourage them to protect themselves and the NHS.
