When will I get the Covid vaccine? Calculator shows when YOU will get jab

THE CORONAVIRUS vaccine programme is well underway across the UK and so far over 6.9 million Brits have received a jab.

Millions more Britons are set to receive their first vaccine dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Oxford/AstraZeneca jabs at vaccine sites and GP surgeries across the country and this calculator reveals when you will get yours.

The next stage of the NHS vaccine programme will reach 4.6million in their 70s and older and another one million who have conditions like cancer or have received organ transplants.

The Government has a list of nine high-priority groups it aims to get through before the general population will get vaccinated.

But ministers have pledged to have all the most vulnerable jabbed by mid February, and all over 50s by May.

Today Pascal Soriot, boss of vaccine manufacturer AstraZeneca, said he believed the UK was on course to administer doses to "maybe 28 or 30 million people" by March – which is half the population.

Addressing MPs this afternoon, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said 6.9 million people have had the vaccine and that he hoped that in the coming weeks the government would be able to set out in detail how the country would "exit from the pandemic".

He added: "Though it remains an exacting target, we are on track to achieve our goal of offering a first dose to everyone in the top four priority groups by the middle of February.

"I can also reassure the House that all current evidence shows that both the vaccines we are administering remain effective against the new variant that was identified in London and the South-East."

An online calculator predicts when you will get your first and second dose of the vaccine.


The tool uses your age, health and whether you work for the NHS to determine where you are in the queue.

It can be adjusted based on how fast the vaccines are deployed – with a speedy operation the key to ending lockdowns.

Boris Johnson has vowed to open 50 mass vaccination centres across the country by next month in a bid to end lockdown early.

When will you get your vaccine?

Omni's vaccine queue calculator will estimate for you how many people are ahead of you in the queue to get a Covid vaccine in the UK.

It also predicts how long you might have to wait to get your first and then second dose.

All you need to do is enter your age, job and if you have a health condition.

It's based on the Government's priority list and the likely rate of vaccination.

The tool assumes that one million people will be vaccinated in a week, which would take just over two years to vaccinate everyone.

Adjusting this to two million per week would mean everyone is innoculated in a year.

At the current pace, 1.5 million people are being vaccinated per week, based on the number of doses given in the week January 11 to January 18.

Omni also predicts 70 per cent of people accept their jab offer, based on flu vaccine uptake, but in reality this could be lower.

With a vaccination rate of one million people per week:

  • A healthy 25-year-old:

You should expect to receive your first dose of vaccine between 18/07/2021 and 30/09/2021. You should then get your second dose by between 10/10/2021 and 23/12/2021.

  • A 40-year-old with an underling health condition:

You should expect to receive your first dose of vaccine between 30/03/2021 and 16/05/2021. You should then get your second dose by between 22/06/2021 and 08/08/2021.

  • A 70-year-old:

You should expect to receive your first dose of vaccine between 14/02/2021 and 13/03/2021. You should then get your second dose by between 09/05/2021 and 05/06/2021.


With a vaccination rate of two million people per week:

  • A healthy 25-year-old:

You should expect to receive your first dose of vaccine between 19/04/2021 and 25/05/2021. You should then get your second dose by between 12/07/2021 and 17/08/2021.

  • A 40-year-old with an underling health condition:

You should expect to receive your first dose of vaccine between 23/02/2021 and 18/03/2021. You should then get your second dose by between 18/05/2021 and 10/06/2021.

  • A 70-year-old:

You should expect to receive your first dose of vaccine between 01/02/2021 and 14/02/2021. You should then get your second dose by between 26/04/2021 and 09/05/2021.

The calculator is only a model to give a broad idea of how long you may need to wait for your jab.

The Government have explained everyone must wait until they are contacted by the NHS, offering them an appointment.

PM praises speed

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has hailed the “national effort” to get millions vaccinated.

Vaccines are the only way to put an end to crippling lockdowns, and so the faster they can be given, the quicker lives can return to normal.

The new coronavirus variant, which can spread faster and is fuelling record high coronavirus cases over the UK, is adding pressure onto the race to doll out vaccine doses.

Officials say the NHS is capable of the huge programme, but relies on sufficient supplies coming through to keep up pace.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said the rollout of the coronavirus vaccine will accelerate over the coming weeks as more supplies become available.

Mr Hancock told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme on January 12 that health services were “on track” to deliver it to 14 million by mid-February.

Every adult in the UK will be offered a first dose of a coronavirus vaccine by September, Dominic Raab has pledged.

The Foreign Secretary said it would be “great” if the rollout could be faster but that the Government was working to the early autumn target.

In an interview on Sky’s Sophy Ridge on January 17, Mr Raab said: “Our target is by September to have offered all the adult population a first dose. If we can do it faster than that, great, but that’s the roadmap.”

He said that he hoped by the “early spring” some restrictions can be lifted “gradually” so the country can “get back to normal”.

Mr Raab warned, however, that it could be put “at risk” by the new variants and pressure on the NHS as he urged people to follow the rules.
