To feel guilty?

I guess I'm a bit unreasonable, but I can't help feeling guilty.
Yesterday, when I was going to the supermarket, there were NHS volunteers on the doors asking people entering and leaving if they'd had the Covid vaccine. I told them no and, guessing they were only singling out over-50's said I wasn't over 50. The volunteer said it looked like I had an underlying health condition (I guess the wheelchair kind of gives it away). I joked that they should try explaining that to my GP, and was told to go down to the pop-up in the carpark and ask them if I was eligible. I went in and did my shop before going down to the pop-up. The staff there confirmed that I was eligible for the vaccine and that, if I was happy to go ahead, I'd get the last dose they had. I accepted.
However, I'm now feeling guilty about what if there had been someone else who had also fallen through the group 6 crack who was in worse health than me who missed out and that I was being greedy and could have just waited for my age group to be called.
AIBU to feel guilty about potentially letting someone else miss out yesterday?

How does this work with getting your second dose?

Now that her first dose is logged she can go on to the NHS site and book her second direct.
