For those interested, this link will work out roughly when you will be offered the vaccine.

Today’s news of the Oxford vaccine being approved could perhaps reduce waiting times.

I notice the time scales have changed. My date has moved back by a few weeks since I first saw this calculator a couple of weeks ago.
I know we have a second vaccine now which is easier to store but the logistics are still difficult and wonder how long it will take just to get the over 80s vaccinated, let alone start on everyone under 80.

30 Jan 10 Feb will we be told which one we are being offered though I wonder ?

30/01/21 - 10/02/21
It will be interesting to refer back to see how many Gransnetters this works for.

10.02.21-09.03.21. I hope the Oxford vaccine means things move more quickly

It’s a mathematical model, based on assumptions that will keep changing as the vaccination arrangements for each area of the UK, and the supply of the various vaccines kicks in. I think it will be quicker to roll out than the models are suggesting if we can get the current wave under control, because staffing to actually carry out the vaccinations is likely to be an issue otherwise. Fingers crossed!

Mine has changed too. It has now been pushed back a few weeks. Not surprised as things haven't gone too smoothly delivering the first vaccine. Roll on the Oxford one.

Mines gone from late Jan early Feb to March compared to a few weeks ago.

03/01/2021 to 30/01/2021, not even had a letter yet so we shall see.
My first calculation was starting 22/12/2020 so back a couple of weeks.

Same here. 3rd - 31st January. I have heard nothing yet but remain hopeful.

This calculator is only based on the Pfizer vaccine programme. With any luck it’s now out of date, and things will speed up a bit with the Oxford vaccine being rolled out from Monday.

According to the calculator in The Times Online in which you have to state your postcode, which is based on the priority groups in one's own area, I am No. 37,691 out of 278,981 in South Gloucestershire, and should get the vaccine at the end of January/Beginning of February.

10/02 to 09/03 for me too. OH is a couple of years older so his dates are 31/01 to 10/02. That's fine by us.

I'd be happy for front line workers, including teachers and taxi drivers, to get their jabs ahead of me.

This is from the BBC Health Correspondent today:

The NHS will now be able to significantly speed up the vaccination process. There are already millions of doses of the Oxford vaccine in the country ready to go. The move to a one-dose strategy will also have a major impact. Within weeks the UK should have 1,500 local vaccination centres up and running - enabling in theory close to two million people a week to be vaccinated if supply can keep up. That means by the end of March the majority of the people in nine priority groups could have been offered a jab. Certainly the over-65s - nine in 10 Covid deaths have been seen in this age group - should have been done. One dose does not offer as much protection as two doses clearly - but the evidence suggests it is effective at preventing serious illness from infection in the very least.

The calculator is based on 1 million people a week receiving vaccinations. The prospect of this doubling to 2 million is fantastic news. Let’s hope it can be done.
