However, nine in 10 adults in Powys have received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine, figures reveal.

Public Health Wales data shows 96,017 people aged 18 and over have been given both doses of a vaccine up to October 17 – 89% of the area's adults.

They make up part of the 98,390 people who have been given at least one jab – 91% of the over-18 population.
