The latest booster jab figures

This leaves a massive 175,355, or 30 per cent, of the 16-plus population still waiting for the third.

It is important to note however that not everyone who has received a second dose is eligible for a booster or third dose.

Individuals are eligible for a booster dose if they were vaccinated in Phase 1 of the COVID-19 vaccination programme and received their second dose at least six months ago.
