I suspect that might depend on your state.  My understanding is that in VA we are essential financial services (like bankers) and we're 1c.

"when filling out county vaccine availability notification forms"

Why would a tax professional be involved with Covid vaccine notifications?

Do you mean where do we stand in the order of Who gets it when?

yes, but we have to pick a sector and "Financial Services" is one, but does not specifically mention tax preparers

I feel like thats the one I remember hearing we fell under when all this started back in March and lockdowns started and who was considered an essential service or not, but it may be more of a question for your particular county.

You may like to refer to your state's guidelines.  At the Federal level, tax preparers do not seem to fit into the category of Financial Services, unless you are in public accounting or support one of the following -

Workers who are needed to provide, process, and maintain systems for processing, verification, and recording of financial transactions and services, including payment, clearing, and settlement; wholesale funding; insurance services; consumer and commercial lending; public accounting; and capital markets activities.

There was also a discussion from last year when all these first started, which could be helpful to you:

I saw a great graph yesterday that I cannot find right now. My State lists this (I am skipping 1A):

Phase 1B
Recipients
• Persons aged 75 years and older
• Individuals residing in congregate care and correctional facilities
• American Indians and other people of color who may be at elevated risk for COVID-19 complications
• Frontline Essential Workers
o First Responders
o Education and all childcare workers
o Critical infrastructure federal employees
o Food & Agriculture
o Manufacturing
o Corrections workers
o US Postal Service
o Public transit workers
o Grocery store workers
o Child and adult protective service workers who are at risk for exposure
o Inspectors of congregate care facilities or like settings
o Critical infrastructure energy workers
o Critical infrastructure IT workers
Approximate Timeline
• January 15, 2021 through March 15, 2021


Phase 1C
Recipients
• Persons aged 65 years and older
• Persons aged 16-64 with high-risk medical conditions
• Essential Workers
o Transportation & Logistics
o Food Service
o Shelter, housing, construction
o Finance
o IT & Communication
o Energy
o Legal
o Media

This assumes you don't already meet 1A or 1B.
