The vaccination programme has reached its last leg as most under 30s are being invited for their jab.

People aged 21 and 22 can now book their Covid jab on the NHS booking website, including those aged 20 whose birthday is before July 1.

It comes after those aged 23 and 24 were called up on Tuesday, and those aged between 25 and 29 just a week earlier.

Everyone aged over 18 should get their invite by the end of this week, Downing Street confirmed yesterday.

But sadly for those under 18, including children and teenagers, Government advisers have reportedly said the jab should not be given despite having approval by medicine regulators.

Latest Government data suggests that so far, more than 41 million people had received their first dose – nearing 80 per cent of adults in the UK.

And more than 30 million have had a second dose – 57 per cent of adults.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: “Second doses are increasingly vital, so this is an incredibly important milestone.

“Day after day, our vaccination programme reaches new heights.”

But with millions still yet to receive a jab, the June 21 unlocking has been put on hold.

 

The vaccine programme is being ramped up in a race against the Delta (Indian) variant, which is causing a surge in Covid cases.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Monday the target to give all adults (over 18s) in the UK their first dose by the end of July had been brought forward to July 19.

But the vaccine calculator suggests that, with the current speed of jabs being administered, this target might not be met.

It says based on the past seven-day rate, people aged 18 to 22 may still be waiting until the start of August to get their first dose.

The rollout of second jabs to those in their 40s will be accelerated, the PM confirmed.

Now all over 40s are to be offered their second jab eight weeks after the first, instead of 12.

Mr Johnson said that by July 19 around two-thirds of the adult population would have received two jabs, including all over-50s, the vulnerable and health and care workers.

Anyone over 40 who had received a first dose by mid-May should also get their second jab by then.

Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales are speeding ahead with rollouts.

All adults have already been called forward to get their vaccine in Northern Ireland and most of Wales, while people aged 18 to 29 in Scotland have been asked to register for their jab, with appointments starting in mid-June.

But it won’t be until the autumn or later that the youngest people get their second doses, at which point a booster campaign for the elderly is expected to start.

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.

When will you get your first and second 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, as the nations are at different stages of their campaigns.

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.
