As 12 to 15 year olds have allowed to have their Covid vaccine in recent weeks, we can reveal what the uptake looks like in each south east London borough.

Covid cases are rising across the UK and in most south east London areas.

Britons have been warned the coming months will be “challenging” as coronavirus cases reached the highest daily level since mid-July.

Downing Street said an increase in coronavirus cases had been expected over the winter and the Government would keep a “close watch” on the situation.

Epidemiologist and government adviser Professor Andrew Hayward said the situation was “concerning” and there was “huge potential for the NHS to come under a lot of pressure”.

Government data up to Monday shows there have been a further 49,156 lab-confirmed Covid-19 cases in the UK.

This is the highest number of daily reported cases since July 17.

Here is a list of the estimated cumulative take-up of first doses of Covid-19 vaccine among 12 to 15-year-olds in south east London, as of October 16.

Bexley 6.6%

Bromley 13.8%

Greenwich 6.1%

Lewisham 5.2%

Southwark 6.3%

Kent 14.8%

The figures have been compiled from data published on the Government’s coronavirus dashboard.
