State to Reschedule COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments at County Center Due to Nor’easter

We are part of The Trust Project

Due to the expected inclement weather from the impending Nor’easter, New York officials will be postponing all COVID-19 vaccine appointments at various state-run distribution sites.

All appointments on Monday and Tuesday at the Westchester County Center, SUNY Stony Brook, Jones Beach, Aqueduct Racetrack, and the Javits Center are cancelled. New Yorkers with appointments at these sites will receive an email or text message rescheduling their vaccination for later this week.

Additionally, the six pop-up vaccination sites planned in the Bronx and Brooklyn are all being scheduled for Wednesday. This included locations at the Bartow Community Center, the Bronx River Addition, the Latino Pastoral Action Center and the Edenwald Houses in the Bronx.  

The Brooklyn spots includes the Cornerstone Baptist Church and God’s Battalion of Prayer Church.

“We ask all New Yorkers to monitor the weather and stay off the roads tomorrow so our crews and first responders can safely do their jobs,” state officials said in a statement.
