Covid-19 vaccine appointments at state-run facilities are canceled Tuesday because of the winter storm crippling travel, the governor’s office said Monday.
The cancelled locations include SUNY Stony Brook, Jones Beach, Aqueduct, the Javits Center and the Westchester County Center. All appointments will be rescheduled.
Upstate state-run mass vaccination sites in Binghamton, Albany, Plattsburgh, Potsdam, Utica, Syracuse and Rochester will open with a delayed start at 10AM Tuesday,
New Yorkers with appointments scheduled for Tuesday at these sites will receive an email or text message rescheduling their vaccination.
“This winter storm is already producing large amounts of snow and creating dangerous travel conditions, and it is expected to continue into tomorrow,” Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said. “For the safety of both workers and individuals scheduled to receive a vaccination, we will be postponing appointments for tomorrow at several vaccination sites that are being impacted by this storm. To be clear – no one is losing an appointment — they will all be rescheduled when conditions are safer.”
