One in three 16-17 year olds in Jersey have received their first Covid-19 vaccine dose.

The latest age cohort has been invited to get vaccinated since 5 August.

Recent statistics also revealed 82% of adults in the island had been given both doses.

Head of Jersey's Vaccination Programme, Becky Sherrington, said she was "delighted" by the uptake.

Across all age groups, 75,860 first doses and 71,783 second doses have been administered in total, the government said.

The latest statistics also show 88% of over 30s have been fully vaccinated.

Addressing the latest vaccine uptake, Ms Sherrington said: "This is fantastic and I would like to encourage more young islanders to make the time to get their first dose before heading back to school." pg slot wallet
