Covid vaccine tracker: How many people have been vaccinated in the UK and when will I get it?

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, and whether the government is on track to hit its vaccination target.

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.The next target is to have everyone in priority groups 5-9 - a further 17.2 million people - to be offered their first dose by the middle of April. That will complete phase one of the vaccination programme.

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