A powerful blizzard hits the east coast of the United States: minute by minute
5 mass vaccination sites to close tomorrow due to blizzard, says New York governor
Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday that five government-run mass vaccination sites in New York State will be closed and all appointments will be rescheduled due to the blizzard.
Mass vaccination sites at Sunny Stony Brook, Jones Beach, Aqueduct Race Rock, Javits Center and Westchester County Center will be closed Tuesday.
“The blizzard is already creating heavy snowfall and creating dangerous travel conditions, and it is expected to continue until tomorrow,” Cuomo said in a statement. “For the safety of both workers and people who are scheduled to be vaccinated, we will postpone appointments at many vaccination sites affected by the storm until tomorrow. To be clear, no one has met and everyone will be reconsidered when conditions are safe.
At least seven state-run mass vaccination sites will be delayed until 10 a.m., but meetings scheduled before that time will be rescheduled later in the day, Cuomo added.
