I say take it


One, expediency matters here.

Two, you really have no way of knowing if the next person they call (or the person who replaces you on the list, or whatever) is someone you'd consider more or less worthy of the vaccine than you.

Three, you have no way of knowing how many others in your group might try to do something similar. One person might consider themselves gracious in allowing someone else to get a shot, but ten thousand people doing that will really just frustrate the efforts to get the shots out.

Four, if one person in your bubble is vaccinated, that should theoretically offer an umbrella of protection that doesn't exist if nobody is. You would now be able to go out and do whatever it is you do that makes you theoretically essential, (probably) not pick up the virus, and (probably) therefore not transmit it to your family, who will then not transmit it to others. It's not foolproof, but it's better than nothing. You could refuse the shot and then someone could get it whose family already has someone who got it - and I would think the world would be safer from COVID if one person in each household was vaccinated, rather than two in some and none in others.
