      Have been having this inner turmoil myself, which as I watch some of my friends claim 'essential worker status' or just sign-up ahead of laws allowing them to do so is causing me a lot more anxiety than I thought it would. I'm happy every time another person gets a shot, but definitely feel like there is some moral imperative to wait your turn. As someone with a young kid and formerly a pregnant wife - I want to jump the line too. I'm impatient. But at the same time we have made it 12 months, what's 1 or 2 more.
