Over 112,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Milton Keynes

The latest vaccination data shows that over 112,000 doses of the vaccine have been administered in Milton Keynes alone.

It comes as the UK is close to vaccinating 30 million people against COVID-19.

The latest data, published by the NHS, reveals that around 17,000 vaccinations have been administered in Milton Keynes in the past week alone. 

A large proportion of over 60s - around 96% - in Milton Keynes has now had at least one dose. 

The NHS has more recently called forward the over 50s to have their vaccine, with local MP Ben Everitt saying that vaccination centres are making "great progress" vaccinating this group.

The data suggests that around 65.5% of 50 to 59-year-olds have had at least one dose.

People over the age of 50 that have not yet had their jab are being urged to book their appointment as soon as possible.

Professor Stephen Powis, the NHS' National Medical Director, has called on anyone who is eligible but has not yet received the first jab to book an appointment in the next few days.

The NHS is expecting a slowdown in the UK vaccine supply for the whole of April, meaning medics will concentrate on delivering second doses, with fewer first appointments available.
