People aged between 25 and 29 can now book their Covid jab on the NHS booking website, including those aged 24 whose birthday is before July 1.

Latest Government data suggests that so far, more than 40.46 million people had received their first dose – 77 per cent of adults in the UK.

And 27.9 million have had a second dose – 53 per cent of adults.

The NHS hailed the “home straight” of the biggest vaccination programme in its history.

It comes less than two weeks after those aged 30 and over became eligble as the jabbing campaign speeds ahead.

More than four in five people in their 40s and two-thirds of those in their 30s have had their first dose, Dr Nikki Kanani, director of primary care at NHS England, said.

And she said "that is still going to increase" as "confidence in the vaccine has increased by a fifth" in those under 40.

 

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.

It puts Boris Johnson on target to keep his promise of having every adult in the UK vaccinated with at least one dose by July.

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.

Meanwhile, health officials have sped up the timetable to offer second jabs in a bid to ensure that those at highest risk are protected from the Indian variant.

And people living in Indian variant hotspots are receiving "surge vaccinations", with more hubs set up and campaigning to urge people to get jabbed.

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 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.
