A new interactive Government map has been released showing the percentage of adults vaccinated against Covid-19 in your area.

The left view shows first doses and the right view shows second doses by local authority and users can zoom in for more local data and use the slider to compare the percentage difference between the first and second doses.

The map reveals that, across West Norfolk as a whole, 82 per cent of adults had received one dose of a Covid vaccine up to Tuesday of this week, June 29.

This new map shows how many people have been vaccinated against coronavirus in your area. The darker areas show where more people have had the jab.

Nearly 65 per cent have had both vaccination doses.

But the map also reveals big gaps in take-up between parts of our area.

One of the most protected parts of the borough is the Heacham and Snettisham area, where the map shows 91.4 per cent of adults have had one jab and 78.1 per cent have had both.

However, in North Lynn, those figures fall to just 57.2 per cent and 39.4 per cent respectively.

The release of the map comes after health chiefs announced that a vaccination bus would be offering jabs at the St Michael's Academy in South Lynn this Saturday.

Unveiling the map, the technical and development lead of the UK Covid-19 Pouria Hadjibagheri said on Twitter last night: "Another massive piece of work is done!"

A similar map was unveiled last June showing the rates of covid in the community.

It comes as the Government targets offering all adults their first dose by July 19.

Yesterday, the Government revealed that millions of people most vulnerable to Covid-19 may be offered a booster vaccination from September to ensure the protection they have from first and second doses is maintained ahead of the winter and against new variants, following interim advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.

The JCVI’s interim advice is to plan to offer Covid-19 booster vaccines from September 2021, in a two-stage programme alongside the annual flu vaccination programme.

The JCVI’s interim advice is that a third booster jab is offered to the following groups in two stages:

Stage 1. The following people should be offered a third dose Covid-19 booster vaccine and the annual influenza vaccine, as soon as possible from September 2021:

  • adults aged 16 years and over who are immunosuppressed;
  • those living in residential care homes for older adults;
  • all adults aged 70 years or over;
  • adults aged 16 years and over who are considered clinically extremely vulnerable;
  • frontline health and social care workers.

Stage 2. The following people should be offered a third Covid-19 booster vaccine as soon as practicable after Stage 1, with equal emphasis on deployment of the influenza vaccine where eligible:

  • all adults aged 50 years and over
  • all adults aged 16 – 49 years who are in an influenza or Covid-19 at-risk group as outlined in the Green Book
  • Adult household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals
