Over 18 million people in the UK have now been vaccinated as the number continues to grow day on day with the government prioritising the elderly and vulnerable.

The government is working through a priority list set out by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) to ensure that those most at risk from coronavirus are protected first.

The list includes both health and social workers who are more likely to be exposed to the virus, while those deemed clinically vulnerable are also being prioritised.

The government have said that the first phase of the vaccine roll out - which will see everybody in the UK over the age of 50 offered a vaccine - will be completed by April 15.

The majority of adults under the age of 50 will have to wait until the second phase of the vaccination programme for their jabs - but there are some health conditions that could put you higher up the priority list.

There are nine groups deemed vulnerable who will be called for their jab in phase one (before April 15) - and group six includes all adults over 16 who have certain underlying health conditions.

But exactly which health conditions will put you into group six and onto the vaccine priority list?

According to the government, the following conditions will place you in group six:

People with Down’s syndrome are classed as clinically extremely vulnerable, and are in group four of phase one.

This week, the government confirmed that anyone on the the GP Learning Disability Register – as well as adults with other related conditions, including cerebral palsy – are also eligible for vaccination as part of priority group six.

This confirmation from the government will mean that a minimum of 150,000 more people with learning disabilities will now be offered the vaccine more quickly.

The JVCI is yet to announce how the priority list will be laid out for phase two of the vaccination programme but the government have said that it hopes every adult over 16 in the UK will have been offered a jab by July 31.
