A new coronavirus vaccine calculator has been created to tell you when you will have your first injection.
The calculator asks a series of questions to estimate how many people are ahead of you in the queue for vaccinations.
It was created by Reach, owner of Staffordshire Live, and the questions include your age, whether you are a health care worker and whether you have underlying health conditions.
An updated calculation was based on the Government’s commitment to offering the first dose to every adult in the UK by 31 July.
The tool also takes into account the additional people who have been re-identified with a number of risk factors that make them more vulnerable to Covid-19
Updated to the latest figures, including the additional ones identified by a number of risk factors that make them more vulnerable to Covid-19
Health workers have recently begun vaccinating people over 65 as the NHS continues to make its way through the Government ‘s list of priorities.
Once people over 65 have been vaccinated, those over 16 will continue to have underlying health conditions, followed by people over 60, people over 55 and people over 50.
For a journalist under the age of 50 and without basic health conditions, the calculator predicts: “You should expect to receive your first dose between 03/04/2021 and 31/05/2021.
“There are still approximately 14,745,784 people in front of your group in the queue. You should receive your second dose between 05/06/2021 and 23/08/2021.”
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Vaccination (JCVI) advises that mortality prevention and the maintenance of the health and social care systems should be the first priorities for the Covid immunization program.
The suggested list of those who should be vaccinated first is below.
1) Residents in a care home for older adults and their carers
2) All 80 years of age and older and face health and social care workers
3) All 75 years of age and older
4) The people aged 70 years and over and clinically vulnerable individuals
5) All 65 years of age and older
6) All people aged 16 to 64 with underlying health conditions that put them at increased risk for serious illness and mortality
7) All 60 years of age and older
8) Everyone 55 years of age and older
9) Over 50 years of age and older
