The vaccination roll-out for people aged over 60 in Harborough has been one of the quickest in England.

The total number of doses given to people across the Harborough district since early December has now hit 100,772.

Some 25,170 people have had both shots – 95.1 per cent of the over-60 age group – ramming the district up to a very impressive fourth in a table of 315 areas throughout England.

More than 60,000 adults in Harborough, some 76 per cent of people aged over 18, have had one jab.

And over 40,000 have had both doses as just over half the district’s total adult population are now fully protected against the coronavirus.
