The most positive note was that the parliamentary constituency of Mid Derbyshire has the highest vaccination rate for people aged 65-69 of any constituency in England.

Derbyshire stats

Derbyshire’s total doses stand at 385,375, of which 376,951 (nearly 98%) were first doses. Those totals both rank Derbyshire 24th out of England’s 42 integrated care.

The numbers mean 44.8% of our adult population has now been vaccinated, which is the 16th best in England.

One of the key age cohorts is people aged 65-69, with vaccinations well underway in this group for several weeks now. Derbyshire is doing well in this group, starting with Mid Derbyshire having the highest rate of any constituency in the UK.

The county as a whole has administered first doses to more than 51,000 people in this age group, the third most in the Midlands.
