The NHS has released its regional coronavirus vaccination figures for the first time – and this shows that the Midlands are leading the way.

447,329 doses have been administered so far in the NHS Midlands region which combines East and West Midlands.

The next highest region was the North East and Yorkshire, with 433,045 doses of coronavirus vaccines administered.

The South East administered 411,257 doses, while the North-West administered 318,445.

The South West and London administered 285,000 and 237,000 respectively, with the East of England at 236,023.

There were also 2,452 listed as others, including some people living in Scotland and Wales.

In total in England, 1,036,605 aged 80 and over received a first dose, while 960,699 were given to those under 80.

The birth rate is rising across the Mid Midlands with the opening of the city’s Millennium Point mass vaccination center on Monday.

All but two of the primary care networks (PCNs) run by the GP in Birmingham and Solihull are now delivering hits, with the remainder set up online soon.

On Wednesday, Asda separately announced one of its stores in Birmingham will be the location of what is thought to be the first supermarket in England to host a vaccination center, on 25 January.

The rapid spread of vaccination is critical with front-line healthcare workers across the city locked in a life-saving race.

On Tuesday, the trust of University Hospitals in Birmingham said it was redeploying 200 doctors to intensive care units (ITUs) and scaling capacity to deal with up to 1,000 Covid patients, with up to 280 intensive care units, in an effort to no longer be “overwhelmed” by a third wave of infections.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan claimed the capital was not receiving its due share of vaccine doses.

The Labor mayor said: “I am extremely concerned that Londoners have only received one-tenth of the vaccines that have been made across the country.

“The situation in London is critical with the extremely high rate of the virus, which is why it is so important that vulnerable Londoners be given access to the vaccine as soon as possible.”

He said he would hold talks with vaccine minister Nadhim Zahawi “to ensure that we urgently receive a quantity of vaccine that reflects our size, density and level of need in our city”.
