In the abstract of this paper the following sentence “Vaccine uptake was low (3.9%) particularly among black people (0.3%) and those with evidence of low income (0.6%)” should read: “Vaccine uptake was low (3.9%, 2.1% of person-time) particularly among black people (0.3% of person-time) and those with evidence of low income (0.6% of person time).”
