As long as there is a stockpile of vaccine then they should probably open it up to more people but throttle the rate it is dispensed according to how fast it is replenished. Let people who would have been in the current Phase jump to the front of the line and we no longer have the issue of vaccines sitting around, waiting for the right people to stick.I include endpoint vaccination sites as being the distribution chain - not simply the physical transport. The tier system made allot of sense medically. If it is screwing things up, then it's just terrible planning an implementation - again.
If we also adopt the UK's plan to give out single-doses to more people I'm all for it once the most vulnerable and frontline workers are all fully vaccinated. After they reach some threshold with single-shot doses (like half the population seeking the vaccine or whatever) people can start coming back for their second dose and it will be throttled by demand. People without their first dose get to skip the line and people who have had it get throttled by availability. Don't want to wait in line? Then come back some other day. It self-regulates.
