As the pace of the covid vaccine rollout continues to quicken, when are you likely to get a jab?

You can use our calculator tool to find out when you should receive your first and second dose.

The UK began rolling out the vaccine on December 8, and hit its target to get at least a first dose into 15m arms of those in the top four priority groups.

They included anyone over the age of 70, as well as front line health and social care workers.

The Government said last week it was expanding the rollout to those aged 65 or over, and those in clinically vulnerable groups, with many more now receiving their vaccine.

It’s also been reported that those aged in their 40s could be offered the first dose of the vaccine as soon as next month.

But in the coming weeks, those who had first doses around the start of the year will be heading towards their appointments for a second jab – so where does that leave you?

You can check on the calculator below.

Reports on Friday suggested people aged as young as 40 could be in line to receive the covid vaccine in just a few weeks.

Advisers are said to prefer continuing to offer jabs on the basis of age, rather than prioritising key workers, once the over-50s have had their jabs.

This could mean age brackets are widened, giving Britons aged 40 to 49 the chance to be inoculated once the top nine groups have first doses.

However Whitehall sources insisted the idea that the over 40s could be jabbed within weeks was “speculation”.

On current trends, the top nine cohorts – an estimated 32million people – could be vaccinated by March 24 if current rates continue.
