The latest figures from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) for the level of vaccinations in the TW8 and TW7 postcode areas show that fewer people are getting their jabs than the London average.

Under two thirds of people in the vicinity of Brentford and Isleworth have received their first jab compared to over three quarters for the capital as a whole. 45% of adult residents are double jabbed compared to 52.6% in the rest of London.

Local health officials are concerned about the relatively low levels of vaccine uptake in the area particularly as the new Delta variant appears to be taking hold with cases doubling in the week to 3 July . It is believed there will be a close correlation between the spread of the disease and the level of vaccination so further efforts are being made to encourage more people to get their jab particularly younger age groups. Both first and second doses of the Pfizer and Astra Zeneca vaccines are being made available on a walk in basis to all adults this Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 July at the Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre.

For the whole of London 52.2% of 18-24 year olds have received their first dose with just 15.0% having had their second. This rises to 65.9% and 20.1% respectively for the 25-29 age group.

Although there have been no reports of significantly increased deaths or hospitalisations due to Covid due to the extra protection provided by the vaccine, Brentford appears to have the highest number of cases in the area with 28 reported in the area defined as Brentford East by the ONS to give an infection rate of 224.7 per 100,000 population equivalent. In the Brentford West & Osterley Park area there were 20 new cases to give a rate of 251.6. However during the same week cases halved in the Syon Green area.

Overall the borough of Hounslow appears to be getting off relatively lightly in the latest wave of the virus with an average infection rate of 154 which compares to the London average of 211.

Up to and including 7 July 5,397,672 people in London had received the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 3,652,272 had received two doses.

The total number of Covid-19 cases identified in London is 786,671 as at 7 July 2021, this compares to 4,362,481 cases for England as a whole

In the most recent week of complete data, (27 June - 3 July) 18,889 cases were identified in London, a rate of 211 cases per 100,000 population. This compares with 11,811 cases and a rate of 132 for the previous week.

In the same week, 148,555 cases were identified in England as a whole, a rate of 264 cases per 100,000 population. This compares with 90,288 cases and a rate of 160 for the previous week.
