Today, Covid vaccination bookings open for the over 21s as the drive to vaccinate the population continues.

Norfolk and Waveney has the best Covid vaccination rate in the country when it comes to giving out first doses, new figures have revealed.

Four out of every five adults in the area - or 80.3pc of the population - have now had at least one coronavirus jab.

Fresh data published by NHS England on Thursday, June 10 showed 684,267 people have attended appointments so far. 

It means that, out of 42 health systems across the nation, Norfolk and Waveney Health and Care Partnership tops the pile for the first time since the programme began in December.
