OpenSAFELY COVID Vaccine coverage report

OpenSAFELY is a new secure analytics platform for electronic patient records built on behalf of NHS England to deliver urgent academic and operational research during the pandemic.

This is our regular weekly report on COVID-19 vaccination coverage in England using data from 40% of general practices that use TPP electronic health record software. The data requires careful interpretation and there are a number of caveats. Please read the full detail about our methods and discussion of our earlier results (as of January 13th) in our preprint paper available here.

The full analytical methods behind the latest results in this report are available here.

Group definitions

  • The care home group is defined based on patients having one of these codes.
  • The shielding group is defined based on patients having one of these codes provided it was not superceded by one of these codes.

  • The LD (learning disability) group is defined based on this codelist and excludes people who are shielding.

  • Patients are counted in their highest risk category only; e.g. a 65-year-old who is shielding is only counted in the shielding group, not in the 65-69 population
