What kind of clinic are you going to? In IL it’s basically honor system. If you attest that you are in the current phase, we give you your shot. No proof needed. We don’t have the time to police this thing, but unfortunately MANY people have taken advantage of it.
Yeah, it's in IL. I'm getting my shot in a small clinic that is getting the extra doses from the local hospitals. It's not run by the Department of Health. When I did speak with them on the phone they sounded a lot more like they might police it. They wanted a paystub or a work badge. I've got both, but one of the judges is supposedly writing a letter as well. So even if they are policing it, it looks like I'm going to qualify regardless. And like you said, it appears a lot of places are doing honor system anyways.
And even if I didn't technically qualify, in all honesty this is around the place I should be getting my vaccine anyways. I've got more than a few co-morbidities here. Fat guy, A+ blood, etc... And I'm dealing with the public all day every day in an essential role.
I imagine a few of the line-jumpers are in similar situations. They may have an extenuating circumstance that isn't necessarily readily-apparent, but leaves them feeling it's their appropriate place in line for whatever reason. I'm okay with most of those.
