Figures reveal that four in five adults in Powys have had a Covid-19 booster jab, writes Radar data reporter Katie Williams.

Public Health Wales data shows 86,398 people aged 18 and over had been triple-jabbed up to March 27 in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic – 79% of the area’s adults.

And 98,386 – 90% – had received two doses of a vaccine by that date.

They make up part of the 100,499 people who have been given at least one jab – 92% of the over-18 population.

Figures for under-18s show 48% of 12 to 15-year-olds had received two doses by March 27, as had 73% of 16 and 17-year-olds in the area.

The data for each age group in the area shows:

  • 16 to 17 – 1,994 fully vaccinated (73%)
  • 18 to 29 – 12,702 fully vaccinated (81%)
  • 30 to 39 – 11,165 fully vaccinated (81%)
  • 40 to 49 – 11,937 fully vaccinated (86%)
  • 50 to 54 – 8,518 fully vaccinated (91%)
  • 55 to 59 – 9,765 fully vaccinated (92%)
  • 60 to 64 – 9,524 fully vaccinated (93%)
  • 65 to 69 – 9,079 fully vaccinated (95%)
  • 70 to 74 – 8,975 fully vaccinated (96%)
  • 75 to 79 – 7,470 fully vaccinated (97%)
  • 80 and over – 9,251 fully vaccinated (97%)

Across Wales, 2.4 million people have had both doses, equating to 87% of the over-12 population, while 2.5 million (92%) have had at least one dose and 1.9 million people (70%) have had a booster vaccination.

The rates use 2020 mid-year population estimates from the Office for National Statistics.
