Covid vaccine

Hi,
What is the Rav’s position on getting the covid vaccine when it is widely available? And second question, if the Rav thinks it is advisable to get the vaccine, is it permissible given pikuach nefesh to make up a story to the non-Jewish authorities to get the vaccine sooner than you would be entitled to (for example say you are an essential worker when you are not)?

Thanks.

If my doctor says I should be vaccinated, can I make up a story for the vaccine distributors so that I get it sooner (for example, tell them I am a health care worker when I am not)?

No. Lying is prohibited.
