This calculator tells you exactly when you’re likely to get your Covid vaccine

Only 39 million people ahead of me

Now that the excitement of the vaccine has started to set in, someone has made a calculator that tells you exactly when you’re likely to get your own Covid vaccine.

Entering your personal details, from underlying illnesses to age in the drop-down boxes, the calculator works out how many people are likely to get in the queue ahead of you based upon government guidelines, as well as when you’re likely to receive it.

Omni, the company that made the calculator, said that they did so using current government guidelines to make it as accurate as possible. “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,” they said. “It also predicts how long you might have to wait to get your vaccine. By using our tool, you’ll have a better idea of when you can expect to get vaccinated.”

How do I calculate when I’ll get the vaccine?

It’s really simple to find out how long you’re going to have to wait for your two jabs:

  • Click here to go through to the calculator
  • Fill in your age and answer the questions on your current circumstances with work and health.
  • Scroll down and see what place you are in the queue.

If you’re young and fit without any underlying health conditions, you may not be surprised to learn that there will be literally millions of people in front of you, as it’s the elderly and those with health conditions that could become seriously compromised by Covid being treated first.

The calculator also gives you an estimate as to when you’ll get the vaccine, with healthy people in their 20s looking likely to get theirs from summer onwards. More than 130,000 people were vaccinated in the first week of the vaccination program, whilst the UK government has ordered 40 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine, which is enough to vaccinate 20 million people – so for now, there’s plenty to be getting on with.
