With the biggest vaccination programme in British history underway, follow the progress of the Covid vaccine rollout with our tracker.

This page is being updated regularly with the latest data on how many people have been vaccinated across the UK.

What is the government's target?

On January 4, Boris Johnson said: "By the middle of February, if things go well and with a fair wind in our sails, we expect to have offered the first vaccine dose to everyone in the four top priority groups identified by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI)." On February 14, figures showed the UK had passed the 15 million figure for first doses administered for the top four priority groups those aged 65 and over, and those over 18 who are clinically extremely vulnerable individuals.The next target was to have everyone in priority groups 5-9 - a further 17.2 million people aged 65 and 70, and those aged 18-64 with underlying health conditions - to be offered their first dose by the middle of April, completing phase one of the vaccination programme. That target was met on 12 April.

Phase two - groups 10-12 - covers all adults aged between 18 and 49. Johnson has pledged everyone in phase two will be offered a first dose by July 19.

The date for offering everyone a first dose was originally the end of July but Johnson brought the date forward to July 19 on June 14.
