Apparently, according to Sparks, when you pre-register (at least here in PA) for the COVID vaccination, signing up as a smoker, even 'just' a pipe smoker, puts you in a higher risk category. Thus you get to go to the head of the line.
And, I have read in the past that in the UK, professing smokers were put at the back of the list on things such as knee replacements and hips. If they were so careless about their health, they did not deserve consideration.

Wife and I got registered today too. No eta though. Went to the doctor Wednesday and when he came in and saw me wearing my mask, he said "you know those don't work, don't you?". I said "but everyone in your office is wearing one!". He said, "Strange, isn't it".
I would rather cut off my arm than live under tyranny!
