If you are still eagerly waiting for your turn in the Covid vaccination queue, here's a reminder of the Government's vaccination priorities

When will I get the vaccine?

This will depend on which group you are in. The vast majority of those over 80, care home residents and health and care staff have already been vaccinated. If you are in one of these groups, you should be offered a vaccine soon — contact your nearest large vaccination centre or your GP to ask for an appointment if you haven't had it already.

In areas where vaccination of these groups is progressing well, people over 70 and those who are clinically extremely vulnerable can now be offered the vaccine. Similarly, if you are in one of these groups, the government says that you should be offered the first dose of the vaccine by 15th February.

The government also says all high-risk groups — that is, everyone over 50, health and care staff and those with health conditions — should receive their first dose by May. And it says all adults should receive a first dose by September.

You should get an invitation to have the vaccine when it is your turn. Currently, this is the order of priority as decided by the JCVI (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation), the expert committee which advises the UK government on immunisation.

1. Older people who live in a care home, and their carers
2. Frontline health and social care workers, and all those 80 years of age and over
3. People aged 75 and over
4. People aged 70 and over, and clinically extremely vulnerable people (the shielding group) aged 16 to 69
5. People aged 65 and over
6. People aged 16 years to 64 with health conditions which put them at higher risk of becoming seriously ill from coronavirus. (These include heart or circulatory disease, as well as diabetes, chronic lung, kidney or liver disease, extreme obesity and if your immune system isn't working properly)
7. People who are unpaid carers for someone who relies on them (including those who get carers' allowance)
8. People aged 60 and over
9. People aged 55 and over
10. People aged 50 and over
