Prime Minister Boris Johnson declared that first jabs had now been offered to everyone in the top four vaccine priority groups – consisting of older care home residents, care home workers, people aged over 70, frontline health and social care workers and the clinically extremely vulnerable.

The Government has now pledged to offer vaccinations to everyone aged over 50 by the end of April.

The data also shows 61,802 people aged between 16 and 69 in Herts Valley had received a first vaccination dose.

It means 28% of people aged 16 and over living in the area have received their first jab.

As of February 14, Hertfordshire and West Essex Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) had administered 340,978 - which includes the first and second dose.

The figures cover people vaccinated in the Hertfordshire and West Essex Integrated Care System area ­– a collaboration between local NHS services and councils aimed at improving health care.

A pharmacy in Apsley has been added to the national booking system, residents can book to have their vaccine here, if they are in the priority groups and have received a letter inviting them to have their jab.

The Government says the vaccine rollout is on track to meet a target of offering a first dose of the vaccine to everyone in the top four priority groups by the middle of February.
