London Covid: The boroughs with the highest and lowest vaccine uptake

Whether it be Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca, the number of people across London who have had both doses of a Covid jab varies hugely depending on where you live.

From Barnet in the north to Croydon in the south, and everywhere in between, MyLondon has crunched the numbers to find the areas of the city where people have been jabbed in their highest numbers.

There’s even one borough where less than half of its population over 12 have received their second dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

According to the latest NHS data, which is published daily on the Government website, 5,432,057 Londoners over the age of 12 are double-jabbed.

Of course, the number is set to rise over the coming months as younger people come forward for their second doses.
