THE NHS has finally revealed how many people have had the coronavirus vaccination in Herefordshire, with figures previously tied with Worcestershire's.

NHS England has, for the first time, broken down the number of first doses given in Herefordshire into 23 areas known as middle super output areas.

These areas have an average population of 8,000, and more than 2,000 people have been vaccinated in most of these areas. The figures cover up to February 21.

Overall in Herefordshire, 63,663 first doses have been given. A second dose of the vaccine is given 12 weeks after the first.

More than 3,000 people have been vaccinated in seven different areas of Herefordshire. They are:

  • Bromyard & Bishop's Frome: 4,319
  • Ross-on-Wye: 3,700
  • Ledbury: 3,614
  • Shobdon, Luston & Bodenham: 3,605
  • Penyard, Llangarron & Goodrich: 3,605
  • Credenhill, Weobley & Wellington: 3,573
  • Kingstone & Kingsthorne: 3,388

Here's the full table where you can search for your area.

Estimated population figures from the Office for National Statistics are not given for these smaller areas by NHS England, so it cannot be worked the percentage of the population to be vaccinated.

They do however give estimated populations for so-called ustainability and transformational partnerships (STPs), each of which contains a number of local authorities, NHS trusts and clinical commissioning groups.


Looking at the figures for the Herefordshire and Worcestershire STP, they show a further 34,988 people were given their first jab in the week to February 14.

In total, 259,288 people have now had their first dose. On top of this, 2,087 have been given a second dose.

Using population estimates from the Office for National Statistics, it shows around almost 100 per cent of all over-70s have now had their first dose.

In addition to this 126,135first doses have also been given to a population of around 515,630 16 to 69-year-olds – 33,554 more than had had the jab the week before.

Vaccines in Herefordshire are given in the order of the Government's priority list, with most at five centres run by GP surgeries. There is also a mass site at Elgar House in Holmer Road, Hereford.
