One area of Kent is lagging behind the rest when it comes to vaccination.
Medway is the county's largest district and is still waiting for a mass vaccine centre a month after one was promised.
It was confirmed by MP Rehman Chishti last week that one would be opened but since then there has been no news.
It is expected to open at some point next month at an undisclosed location and would have capacity to vaccinate 3,000 people a day.
But now KentOnline analysis of data up to February 21 shows just under 30% of Medway's population has received a jab.
By contrast in Kent as a whole 35% of people have received a dose and in Folkestone and Hythe almost 42% of residents have.
Population figures only include those eligible who are over 18 and not vulnerable 16 and 17 year olds.
Those living in Thanet, Dover and nearby Maidstone were also substantially more likely to have received the vaccine than residents of Medway's five towns of Strood, Rochester, Chatham, Rainham and Gillingham.
Earlier today we reported how Medway Maritime Hospital's A&E had received a damning CQC report amid unprecedented pressure brought about by the crisis.
And in Swale which is also served by the hospital a third of residents have had a jab.
Across the whole of Kent and Medway 508,563 people have now received at least one dose of a vaccine, up 77,811 on last week.
There are now 26,257 people who have had both doses, up just over 1,000 on last week.
Figures suggest by mid May at the current rate of vaccination all adults in Kent could be jabbed.
Previously the government set a goal of vaccinating the top four priority age groups in the country by the middle of this month, a target they reached.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock has now set his sights higher and vowed to offer every adult over 50 a jab by mid April and every adult one by the autumn.
Nationally 26.5% the entire population have been jabbed, a total of 14,928,046.
