More than 30,000 residents have already had their jab

Rugby's vaccination project has continued to grow after the historical moment on December 16 - when the town's first coronavirus vaccine was administered by Dr Helen Douse to her father, retired GP Joe Douse, at the newly-set up Locke House centre.

Since then at least 30,980 Rugbeians have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, and in some areas of Rugby almost half of those over 16 have had the jab.
