About 92% of people classified as clinically extremely vulnerable had received their first dose of coronavirus vaccine by 4 April, NHS England figures show.

The proportion of people aged 16 to 64 in an “at-risk group” or who are unpaid carers to have received a first jab by this date was 78.8%, the data shows.

People are identified as at risk or a carer in a number of ways, including through GP records, those receiving carer’s allowance or on the GP Learning Disability Register, and those identified as unpaid carers by local authorities, NHS England said.

People included in these figures may have been vaccinated as part of another high-priority group such as the clinically extremely vulnerable or healthcare workers, it added.
