    Really great new table Steve thank you. Re the low take up areas- we are due a report at the next week Outbreak Management Board, where hopefully they can confirm the view re age profiles are part of the problem and what else. There are other concerns which may factor eg hospital workers live in inner wards and some are vaccine shy, is transport an issue- are population numbers accurate -esp this year ( new estimates just published (I think) xtra 1.5 k population across the city.) There are known knowns, known unknowns but how many unknown unknowns!
