So I have a moral dilemma. Advice welcomed .

I had my physical today. Iím 54 and have lost almost 30 pounds in the last 14 months. Diet change and more exercise.

Anyway, the nurse asked me if I plan on getting the Covid vaccine. I told her I would drive to Jacksonville right now to get it(3 hours away). I was kidding but I would do it.

Apparently because Iím technically obese and have hypertension I qualify under our Governorís new order allowing those under 65 with co-morbidities to get the vaccine. I have hypertension but medication keeps it below 130/80. So not horrible. And Iím 5í11Ē and 220 but very big boned. No one would call me fat, just real stocky and muscular. So my Doctor gave me a signed letter allowing me to be vaccinated.

The only reason Iím considering it is the wife. She is over 60, working everyday(Iím still furloughed) and Iím worried about her.

If it were just me I would put the letter aside. But now Iím torn with concerned for the wife. I would welcome input.
