Access is an issue. A family member requires blood work every six months to monitor medication levels and has been told, repeatedly, that the office isn't seeing patients that aren't actively ill. While I understand the prioritization, the DIY method of guess and adjust at home is risky.

What I really don't understand is why all physicians, pharmacists, etc. weren't prioritized in the first wave. Would help. methinks, by increasing access to medical care.
It seems bizarre. A doctor I spoke to yesterday said he was in the 2nd group due to lung disease (hes about 50, otherwise healthy), but his wife, same age in primary care but no health issues is farther down the list. Makes 0 sense.
