Should I decline/refuse my second vaccine dose?

I roughly fit the description of "a worker who [doesn't] qualify" from this article--I'm an employee of a medical center who does not directly interact with COVID-19 patients. I recieved my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine in late December, after patient-facing staff had all been vaccinated. Should I have declined the first dose? If my employer doesn't take the initiative and withdraw the offer of a second dose, is it unethical for me to accept it (scheduled in a few days)? Additionally, if you feel strongly that the answers to these questions are "yes," what other actions do you think it would be appropriate to take now to make amends for jumping the queue?
