The online calculator started to let people know where they are likely to be in the queue to get the Pfizer / BioNTech coronavirus vaccine

Health Secretary Lord Bethell said more than 137000 people in the UK received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine in the first week of the “largest vaccination program in British history”

The government ordered 40 million doses of the vaccine – enough to immunize 20 million people with two shots each, the first tranche contains 800000 cans, which means that initially 400000 people will be vaccinated

For those who want to know where to queue to get the kick, Omni Calculator has launched a UK vaccine queue calculator

Users of the calculator are asked to enter their age and inform the system about certain factors, e.g. B. whether they are health workers or whether they have underlying health conditions

The omni calculator then gives the user a fictional number where it stands in relation to vaccine priority. The calculator is independent and not affiliated with the NHS or the vaccine rollout program

Doses of the Pfizer / BioNTech shock are being administered by dozens of hospital centers – with people 80+, nursing home workers and NHS workers who are at higher risk in the first place

The priority is offered according to a detailed list drawn up by experts advising the government

The Joint Vaccination and Immunization Committee (JCVI) looked at data on who has the worst consequences of the disease and who is at the highest risk of death

Preliminary guidelines were published earlier this year, which were later changed slightly to prioritize people classified as “extremely clinically at risk”

Sir Patrick Vallance, Engand’s Chief Scientific Adviser, said the UK is unlikely to return to some semblance of normal before spring and that we may still need our face masks next winter

He stated that despite knowing that the vaccine prevents the virus from settling in the body, it is not yet known whether it will prevent transmission between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated

Speaking to Sky News on so-called “V-Day”, he said, “It will be a long time before everyone in the risk groups and all those hard-to-reach groups are vaccinated as appropriate”
