Stony Brook University vaccination site to remain closed Tuesday

New York state's COVID-19 vaccine site is located at Stony Brook University's Innovation and Discovery Center, 1500 Stony Brook Rd., in Stony Brook. The site will remain closed on Tuesday, Feb. 2, because of the snow storm.

STONY BROOK, NY (OnSachem.com / OnTownMedia.com) — Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that COVID-19 vaccine appointments scheduled for Tuesday at multiple state-run sites throughout New York will be postponed due to the winter storm. Downstate state-run mass vaccination sites at Stony Brook University (SUNY Stony Brook), Jones Beach in Wantagh, Aqueduct Racetrack in Jamaica, Queens, the Javits Center in Manhattan, and the Westchester County Center in White Plains will be closed Tuesday.

Upstate state-run mass vaccination sites in Albany, Binghamton, Plattsburgh, Potsdam, Rochester, Syracuse, and Utica will open with a delayed start at 10 a.m. Tuesday. Appointments that were previously scheduled before 10 a.m. at these sites will be rescheduled for later in the day. The Buffalo University state vaccination site will be open regular hours with no change to scheduled appointments. 

New Yorkers with appointments scheduled for Tuesday at these sites will receive an email or text message rescheduling their vaccination. 

"For the safety of both workers and individuals scheduled to receive a vaccination, we will be postponing appointments...at several vaccination sites that are being impacted by this storm," Cuomo said. "To be clear - no one is losing an appointment -- they will all be rescheduled when conditions are safer."
