Four-fifths of the UK population is now fully vaccinated against Covid-19, with a booster programme announced for the over-50s this week.

England’s deputy chief medical officer, Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, said the UK has had one of the world’s most successful Covid-19 vaccination programmes.

Vaccines have averted 24 million cases and saved an estimated 112,000 lives, he told a Downing Street press conference.

Covid infection rates have surged across England since children returned to the classroom.

Official figures from the UK Government show infection rates increased by 13% between August 31 and September 7.

As of September 12, 81% of people aged over 16 had received two doses of a vaccine, according to Public Health England.

However, there are areas in Birmingham where a far smaller proportion of the population had had both jabs.

Here are the neighbourhoods with the fewest over-16s fully vaccinated.

The neighbourhoods are middle super layer output areas (MSOAs), small geographic units used in government statistics.

North central and Dartmouth Circus has Birmingham’s lowest percentage of people fully vaccinated, at 33.82%.

This is the fifteenth lowest percentage of any neighbourhood in England.

As of September 12, 4,288 of the 12,678 over-16s estimated to be living there were double jabbed.

Next in the list was Winston Green and Gib Heath where just 37.12% of residents are double jabbed, and Summerfield was next where the rate was 37.31%.

Saltley East was fourth on the list with 37.81% of adults fully vaccinated, with just 37.93% double jabbed in Bordesley Green North.
