This government is delivering on its commitment to level up regions such as ours. Yorkshire’s economy already has world-leading industry and a population of entrepreneurs and grafters. Yet too many of our communities punch beneath their weight and deprivation is higher than in the South. If levelling-up means anything, it is the mission to unlock

10,000,000 Booster Jab Milestone Reached

November 8, 2021

Julian has welcomed the news that 1,3888,202 people in Yorkshire and Humber have received their COVID-19 booster or third jab as the Conservative government continues to step up efforts to ensure that vulnerable people are fully protected against COVID-19 over the winter.

The latest figures show that more than 10 million people across the UK have received their COVID-19 booster or third jabs, ensuring the vital protection they have secured from their first two doses is maintained over the winter months.

A total of 10,062,704 people have received their booster and third jabs in the UK. 45,836,791 people have had two doses (79.7%) and 50,234,416 people have received one dose (87.4%).

Seven in 10 over 80s and three in five over-50s in England are already vaccinated with top-up jabs.

NHS England will be inviting another three million people who will become eligible for their booster next week. More than 13 million invites, including texts, letters and emails, have already been sent to eligible people in England so far asking them to book their booster online through the National Booking Service. The additional letters due to land next week will mean around 16 million invites have been sent in England since the NHS booster programme began.

The National Booking Service will be updated tomorrow (Monday 8 November) to allow those eligible for a booster vaccine – people over 50 and those most at risk of COVID-19 – to pre-book their jab five months after their second dose.

People will still receive their vaccine six months after their second dose, but the change will speed up
