Phase two of the vaccination programme, which will cover those aged 18 to 49 years old not already included in phase one, commenced on 13 April with the vaccine being offered first to those aged 45 to 49 years old. It is not possible to say how many of the remaining age cohorts will have been offered a first dose vaccination by 6 May as operational factors influence decisions on the exact date when each cohort is opened. However, the programme is on track to offer a first dose of the vaccine to all those aged 18 years old or over in England by 31 July.
