To piggyback off the COVID vaccine debate...what are your thoughts on states vaccinating people who are classified as overweight or obese as defined by BMI?
For example....I have a BMI of 26. I am otherwise healthy 34 year old. On March 29, my state opens up eligibility to the next group which includes people who are overweight/obese. To give context here, my 55 year old mother with several severe health conditions who hasn't left her house in well over a year due to the pandemic will "qualify" at the same time as me.
It's easy for me, I'll be waiting until eligibility opens to the general populations. I don't deserve a vaccine because I'm carrying 10 extra pounds above my "ideal BMI". But, many people in the same situation as me won't wait.
