Online Calculator Tells You Roughly When To Expect Your Coronavirus Vaccine
The emergence of the jab is finally offering the world some hope that normality could one day be restored.
But while some of the country's most elderly got their first doses on the 8th December, for many of us, there is still a long wait until we get the newly approved coronavirus vaccine.
That's where Omni's virus calculator comes in.
The calculator will allow you to put in various details, including your age, in order to work out your place in the queue when it comes to the vaccine.
Generally, the older you are the sooner you'll get the jab.
It looks at everything from whether you are pregnant or planning to be in the next three months, to if you're an key worker, at a care home or for the NHS.
Plus, it takes into account things like whether you've had to shield during the pandemic, or have an underlying health condition.
Once you've input all your information, the calculator will update you on how many people are in front of you.

Of course, it's just an estimate, but it uses your personal data to ensure it's as accurate as possible.
The priority goes to the elderly and the most vulnerable.
Then, those in the NHS will get vaccine, before eventually it will be rolled out to everybody else.
To start with, the Pfizer jab will only cover 20 million people, seeing as 40 million doses have been secured, and each person needs two doses to be fully protected.
So far, 137,897 people have received their first vaccine, according to Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi.
The government also has 340 million doses on the order from the other vaccines that still need approval from medical regulatory bodies.
"You will see an estimate of the maximum number of people who are in line to receive the vaccine before you," the calculator explains.
"We also indicate how long it might be before you get the vaccine, based on the vaccination rate. By default, we base these figures on a vaccination rate of 1 million vaccinations a week and a default takeup rate of 70.6 per cent."
