WITH the government's vaccination programme continuing across the country, an online calculator can help find out how long you will have to wait.

This comes as infection rates fall across East Lancashire's boroughs but with lockdown regulations set to remain in place for at least weeks to come.

As such, plenty of residents have been eager to find out when they are likely to be vaccinated, which the online calculator can help find out.

Omni Calculator

The calculator was first launched after the Pfizer/BioNTech jab was approved.

It currently works on the basis that the Government will vaccinate one million people per week on average over 2021.

As it is designed with this average in mind, it has not been adjusted following the rollout of the Oxford vaccine.

However, it allows users to adjust the rate of vaccination themselves in advance mode.

Users of the calculator are asked to enter their age and notify the system of certain factors such as if they are a health worker or if they have any underlying health conditions.

Omni’s calculator will then give the user a national number as to where they stand in terms of vaccine priority.

The calculator is independent and not connected to the NHS or the vaccine rollout programme.

Vaccine Queue Calculator for the UK


The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was approved for use in the UK on December 2, becoming the first coronavirus vaccine to be authorised anywhere in the world.

The Government began administering the vaccine on December 8, with Margaret Keenan, a grandmother from Coventry, the first person in the world to receive a Covid vaccination.

This was followed on December 30 by the approval of the cheaper and easier to distribute Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.

A third vaccine, produced by Moderna, was approved for use in the UK in early January, with several others expected to follow in the first quarter of 2021.

In December, the government published a list of nine vulnerable groups who will be given priority, following the advice of the independent Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.

No firm target has been set to give the vaccine to the whole adult population, but it is thought this could be achieved by the end of summer.

So far those aged under 16 are not eligible as the vaccines have not been approved for use in children.
