MORE THAN one-third of Wales’s adult population has been vaccinated against Covid-19 as administered doses hit one million this weekend, the Welsh government has announced.
It said that 91.2 per cent of the over-80s have been vaccinated as well as 93.4 per cent of people aged 75-79, 92.9 per cent aged 70-74, and 87.6 per cent of people deemed clinically vulnerable.
The total number of vaccinations includes 162,941 front-line health and social care workers.
Welsh Health Minister Vaughan Gething said: “One million doses delivered is a fantastic testament to the incredible hard work and efforts of all those involved in Wales’s vaccine roll out.
“To have reached such an incredible marker within just 12 weeks of the first vaccines arriving in the country should not be underestimated.
“Our vaccine programme continues at pace, and as long as supplies allow, we will vaccinate every adult by the end of July.
“I want to reassure people that no-one will be left behind — anyone who wants a vaccine will get one.”
The figures are higher than in England.
More than 20 million people in the UK have now been given their first dose of a coronavirus vaccine, the government said today.
