Across England, 29.1 million people had received a second dose of the jab by July 11 – 64 per cent of the population aged over 16 and over.

Despite the success of the rollout, some staff at care homes in Windsor and Maidenhead have not been fully vaccinated.

The figures show 1,205 out of 1,659 eligible staff, including agency workers, at older adult care homes had received two doses of a vaccine by July 11 – meaning 27 per cent have not been fully vaccinated.

The Government plans to make the jab mandatory for staff over concerns for residents.
