Vaccinations are currently only being offered to children aged 12 to 15 who are at higher risk from coronavirus or who live with someone who has a suppressed immune system.

Across England, more than half a million under-18s have now been vaccinated against coronavirus, representing 14 per cent of the 12-17 population.

In the South East, a total of 94,515 under-18s have been vaccinated.

Population figures are mid-year estimates from the Office for National Statistics so may not be exact.
