You qualify so you should get it if you can and not feel bad about it. <3

I'm of the opinion that if you can get the shot, get it. You're contributing to the herd immunity at that point, and that is a good thing. It's not clear who would get one instead, either.

I agree with your other commenters. Don’t pass up an opportunity to get a vaccine.

Totally agree. There are enough people planning to refuse the vaccine when it is offered to them. Don't be one of them, even if you think it's for a good reason!

If it helps, I think some gray area is inevitable in all this, just because of the insane logistics of vaccinating millions of people. My husband is a proofreader with no underlying conditions, but he happens to work for a place where most employees legitimately deserve some priority, and surprisingly enough, he's being included in their plans even though he himself does no front-line work. Maybe we should feel more conflicted (we're usually the painfully scrupulous type), but it honestly didn't even occur to us to feel bad. But maybe you know a priest or other advisor who might be able to help you think and pray it through? Best wishes deciding.

(Alas for the lack of edit button! What I meant to explain was, his *workplace* is arranging for vaccinations, and he unexpectedly got included in their plans - well, it was unexpected to us, but the workplace chose it deliberately.)
