8485496879?profile=RESIZE_400xDoctors call for extra efforts amid signs black people and those in poor areas are less likely to receive jabs

Doctors have raised concerns about “worrying” disparities in vaccine coverage in England amid signs black people and those in more deprived areas were less likely to receive the vaccine than others in the first weeks of rollout.

Researchers monitored the vaccination status of more than 1 million people aged 80 and over from the start of the vaccination programme on 8 December and found 41.1% had received at least one shot by 13 January. None of the patients in the study were living in care homes.
