THIS Covid vaccine calculator reveals when you will get your first coronavirus jab – as those in their 30s are set to get their first dose as soon as next month.
Millions of jabs have been given to the most vulnerable and 10 million more doses will be available from next week – giving even more Brits some protection against the virus.

Experts said that the jab programme will continue to prioritise people by age after those in their 80s were put at the top of the list.
People aged between 40 and 49 will be next in line for the jab, followed by the 30-39s age group and then all those 18 to 29.
There will be a “rapid increase” in the number of people getting vaccinated in the coming weeks thanks to a “big uplift” in supply following a “dip” at the end of February, vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi said today.
His said the ultimate aim is to get 95 per cent of British adults vaccinated – and the offer of a jab was “evergreen” for people who had not yet accepted their invitation.
Mr Zahawi told the Women and Equalities House of Commons Committee that until now “supply has been finite” but he was “expecting tens of millions of doses to come through”.
And all adults in the UK could have received the vaccine as early as MAY following a surge in vaccine supplies.
However Professor Chris Whitty, chief scientific adviser, this week warned that Covid will “find the people who have not been vaccinated“, or for whom the jab does not work.
When will you get your vaccine?
As the vaccine rollout continues across the UK the vaccine calculator reveals when you will be in line to receive your first and second dose – based on the current seven-day vaccination rate.
In phase 2 of the government’s rollout priority will be given in the following order:
- All those aged 40-49
- All those aged 30-39
- All those aged 18-29
These groups will be vaccinated once all those in phase 1 (the over-50s and most vulnerable) have received a jab.
So far more than 22.8 million Brits have been given a first dose of either the Oxford/AstraZeneca jab or the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, with over 1.2 million having received a second dose.
Omni’s vaccine queue calculator will estimate how many people are ahead of you in the queue to get a Covid vaccine in the UK.
You can also use the calculator that only applies to England.
To use the tool you have to enter your age, job and if you have a health condition.
It’s based on the JCVI list and it can be adjusted based on how fast the vaccines are deployed – with a speedy operation the key to ending lockdowns.
Omni also sets a default uptake rate of 75 per cent based on previous years’ flu vaccine figures.

If the current vaccination rate continues, a 21-year-old could be getting their first dose by May, based on the current uptake of 70 per cent
WHAT IS THE PRIORITY LIST?
The most vulnerable in society will need to be jabbed first and these include high priority groups.
Around 15 million people in the top four groups have already been given a jab.
If you haven’t received your jab and you are in one of the top four groups then you should contact your GP.
The official prioritisation list, drawn up by the JCVI
On February 21, the NHS reported that two thirds of the 65 to 69s have received their first dose.
The aim is to reach everyone over 50 by mid-April, the Health Secretary Matt Hancock revealed, an earlier target than the initial “end of April”.
Data has suggested that the vaccine rollout is moving at such pace, all over 50s could have their first dose by the end of March.
People who started receiving their first dose per week from mid-January will need their second dose from mid-April onwards.

The calculator is only a model to give a broad idea of how long you may need to wait for your jab.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has assured Brits there is enough vaccination supply to get every adult the first dose of the coronavirus jab by the end of July.
He said: “We’ve got to make sure that we have the supply in place for everybody to get their second vaccination within 12 weeks, as well as giving every adult, as we said already, a vaccination by the end of July.
“We do believe we have the supplies in place to keep up that rhythm and that timetable.
“And we’re looking the whole time to source more where we can from our suppliers according to the contracts that we’ve already signed.”
