Covid: Will Scotland's teenagers buck the vaccination trend?

 

 

Vaccine drop-in clinics for 12-15 year olds opened a little over three weeks ago, but more than 40% of the age group have now received at least their first dose.

With the vaccination of 16 and 17-year-olds also continuing at a reasonable rate, will Scotland's youngest teenagers end up better protected from Covid than older age groups?

 

What about the youngest age groups?
Vaccination drop-in clinics opened on 7 August for 16-17 year olds.

 

It wasn't a standing start, as 12% of that age group had already received a first dose, but coverage is now at 73.2% and closing in on the 18-29 age group which has 77.2% coverage.

 

The drop-in clinics were opened to 12-15 year olds on 20 September and vaccination appointment letters began to be sent out a week after that.

 

This age group has gone from 5.4% coverage to just over 40% in about three weeks.

 

How does Scotland compare with England?
Again, it's worth bearing in mind the vast differences in population size between England and Scotland.

 

England has vaccinated more than 354,000 12-15 year olds with a first dose, compared with about 95,000 in Scotland, according to the UK government Covid dashboard.

 

The numbers are similar for 16-17 year olds - in England 771,719 have been given a first dose, almost 10 times higher than the number in Scotland.

 

However, in terms of percentage coverage, Scotland is doing much better in both age groups.
