No specific comparative assessment has been made on the number of men and women receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.

The ‘UK COVID-19 vaccine uptake plan’ published in February sets out the Government’s approach to ensure that all groups have the opportunity to receive the vaccine. The plan is available at the following link:
