An online calculator has been launched that can be used to find out when you can get two doses of any of the coronavirus vaccines.
The second drug was launched from today, Monday, which means people could be vaccinated faster.
However, the second dose of both vaccine types is not given for 12 weeks – instead of three weeks.
And the government’s latest priority list shows that right now, only those over 50 – and those with underlying health conditions – need a sting.
This means more people can be vaccinated faster, but it can also take longer to get full immunity, reports The mirror.
Complete immunity would mean about a 90 percent decrease in the chances of developing the worst symptoms of the disease.
The government wants to vaccinate two million people a week – the number it takes to get back to normal by Easter.
There are currently around 300,000 per week.
The calculator bases its estimates of when you will get a sting based on 1,000,000 vaccinations per week.
The Omni calculator uses your age regardless of whether you live or work in a nursing home, are pregnant or plan to be in the next three months, and whether you are a frontline health or social worker, considered extremely vulnerable, or underlying have lying health.
It is estimated how many people are waiting in line in front of you.
The website states, “We also state how long it may be to get the vaccine based on the vaccination rate. By default, these numbers are based on a vaccination rate of 1 million vaccinations per week and a standard intake rate of 70.6% . ”
“As more data on actual vaccination rates are published, we can revise this default value.”
The calculator also has an advanced mode that allows you to change the vaccination rate and intake values.
The government has issued a priority list. They are:
Residents of a nursing home for older adults and their carers
All of these 80+ and health and social workers on the front lines
All these 75 years and older
All these over 70-year-olds and clinically extremely vulnerable people
All these 65 years and older
Anyone aged 16 to 64 years with underlying health conditions that are at greater risk for serious illness and mortality
All these 60 years and older
All these 55 years and older
All these 50 years and older
