NHS England releases weekly vaccination data which shows that as of 15 April:

- 94.2% eligible residents in older adult care homes in England have received at least their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine;

- 79.4% eligible staff in older adult resident care homes have received at least their first dose; and

- 95.2% of patients over 80 years old have received at least their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

The percentage of National Health Service trust health care workers who have received at least their first dose is not currently available, as NHS England’s data does not currently include all frontline health workers as a sub-group.

COVID-19 vaccination data for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland is not collected centrally in the format requested as this is a devolved matter.
