The number of jabs being given in the capital has fallen alarmingly in the last week despite efforts to encourage young Londoners to get vaccinated.

A total of 374,941 first and second Covid-19 vaccine doses were administered in the last seven days, almost 52,000 or 12 per cent fewer than the 426,648 given in the previous week, the Standard can reveal.
