Statistics are now available from on the vaccines roll-out for MSOAs, which break down the borough into 40 areas of roughly-equal population, as well as for Greater Manchester and the North West

These have been recorded and analysed by the JPIMedia Data Unit.

The highest percentage of residents vaccinated is in Standish South, where an estimated 48 per cent of those aged 16 or over had been given at least one dose by February 28.

Data shows how many people in Wigan's neighbourhoods have had a Covid-19 jab
Data shows how many people in Wigan's neighbourhoods have had a Covid-19 jab

In Shevington and Lowton 47 per cent of adults had received their first jab, while the figure was 46 per cent for Worsley Mesnes and Hawkley Hall and Standish North.

By contrast the lowest percentage of adults given at least one jab was reckoned to be just 27 per cent, recorded in Leigh Central and Laithwaite and Marsh Green.

This was then followed by Wigan East and Ince, where the coverage rate for vaccines was 30 per cent as of February 28.

More than 4,000 adults in Shevington have now received at least one jab, while in Leigh Central the figure was 1,497.

Among the over-70s, a higher-priority group which was invited for jabs comparatively early on in the roll-out, the lowest figure is 89 per cent for Wigan East, where 764 jabs have been given to older residents.

The population figures are estimates but it can be said than in around 15 of Wigan's 40 MSOAs it is likely that every resident under 70 has now received a vaccine dose.

In terms of people rather than percentages, the highest numbers of jabs given to over-70s are the 2,218 recorded in Orrell and Longshaw, the 1,922 in Shevington and the 1,684 in Winstanley.

Across Greater Manchester 841,241 people had received their first dose by February 28.

Of those,, 110,789 were aged over 80, meaning 93.7 per cent of that high-priority cohort had been given a dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.

Across the city-region 28,377 people, including 15,569 over-80s, have had their second doses.

More than 2.2 million people had received a first dose across the North West by February 28.

In total 95 per cent of over-80s have had a first dose, with 39.5 per cent of the total regional population having some protection against the novel coronavirus.

The North West has the second-highest percentage in England for its total vaccine coverage, but has the second-lowest rate among the over-80s.
