On August 24, just 55,410 received a first dose of the Covid vaccine, with 130,676 receiving a second jab.
This is down from a peak in March when more than 750,000 first doses were administered and a peak in May of more than 550,000 second doses were given on a single day.
But the drop-off in uptake is not down to supply issues as experienced in many other countries – it’s down to a lack of demand.
Vaccination uptake in older age groups has begun to flatline – but more concerning is the lack of uptake in younger age groups.
The vaccine was only offered to 16 and 17-year olds across Britain at the start of this month which accounts for the low take-up so far.
