The UK is on the brink of reaching the milestone of three-quarters of adults receiving their first Covid-19 vaccine, amid debate over ending restrictions.

Latest Government data suggests that so far, more than 39.4 million people had received their first dose – to 74.9 per cent of adults in the UK.

In a speech on Wednesday, Health Secretary Matt Hancock will praise the central role of the NHS in the vaccine rollout and say the Government “backed lots of horses”, investing “at risk” in different projects.

More than 39.4 million Brits have received a first dose of either the Oxford/AstraZeneca, the Pfizer/BioNTech or the Moderna jab.

And 25.7 million have had a second dose, giving them maximum protection.

At the moment people in their early 30s are getting their first dose.

More than half of people in their 30s in England have gotten their jab in a period of little over two weeks.

NHS England said on Sunday that, since it began opening up the vaccine rollout to this age group on May 13, some 53 per cent of those aged 30 to 39 have been given at least one dose.

Only those aged between 18 and 29 years old are left to invite for a jab.

People aged 28 and 29 are expected to be offered the vaccine this week, the Telegraph reported.

Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales are speeding ahead with rollouts, with jabs open to those aged 30, 25 and 18, respectively.

It puts Boris Johnson on target to keep his promise of having every adult vaccinated by July.

NHS chief executive Sir Simon Stevens said: “It is remarkable that, in little over two weeks since people in their 30s began getting their invites, more than half have now had their first dose.

“This success is no happy accident but the result of months of careful planning and the sheer hard work and dedication of NHS staff.”

People who are eligible for a vaccine will get a text sent from “NHSvaccine” inviting them to get a dose with a link to the booking site. People can also call 119.

There are thousands of vaccine sites to choose from, including shopping centres, mosques and pharmacies.

Meanwhile, health officials have sped up the timetable to offer second jabs in a bid to ensure that those at highest risk are protected from the Indian variant.

And people living in Indian variant hotspots are receiving “surge vaccinations”, with more hubs set up and campaigning to urge people to get jabbed.

 

When will you get your vaccine?

Omni’s vaccine queue calculator will estimate how many people are ahead of you in the wait for a jab in the UK.

You can also use the calculator that only applies to England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland which is more specific.

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

It can be adjusted based on how fast the vaccines are deployed – using the seven-day rate gives the closest estimation, however cannot account for any potential delays or shortages in the future.

Omni also sets a default uptake rate of 75 per cent based on previous years’ flu vaccine figures.

In reality, this could be lower or higher. The uptake has reached record levels of the high 90s but this may get lower in younger groups.

Changing the uptake rate on the calculator either makes the queue longer or shorter.
