Vaccinations in Cambridge
Despite the current higher than national average infection rate in Cambridge, the percentage of the population who have received the vaccine remains low. Nationally, 86.4% have received the first dose compared with 61% in Cambridge and nationally 65% have had the second dose compared with 36% in Cambridge.
In an attempt to improve the situation, a number of walk-in vaccination centres are being set up for those over-18s who have not yet received both doses of the vaccine.
