It has led to a forecast from the Bank of England that the economy will grow this year at its fastest pace since the Second World War.

The Bank predicts gross domestic product (GDP) – a measure of the size of the economy – will rebound by 7.25 per cent in 2021, up from its previous prediction of 5 per cent and the best year of growth since official records began in 1948.

The Bank said: “New Covid cases in the United Kingdom have continued to fall, the vaccination program is proceeding apace, and restrictions on economic activity are easing.”

The NHS vaccine data also reveals variation in coverage for residents who had received at least one dose between different areas across Bracknell Forest.

Across Bracknell Forest, 63 per cent of those aged 16 and over have had one jab.
