The state's mass COVID-19 vaccination sites at Jones Beach and Stony Brook will reopen on Monday after being shuttered on Sunday due to the storm that dumped more snow on Long Island, officials said.

"UPDATE: All of NY's Mass Vaccination Sites are OPEN tomorrow — no cancellations as a result of weather," Melissa DeRosa, secretary to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, tweeted at 6:15 p.m. on Sunday.

On Saturday, Cuomo announced the closures but also pledged vaccine appointments for Sunday would be rescheduled later in the week. People with those appointments will receive a text or email with information.

Nassau County's two vaccination sites were also closed on Sunday due to the weather but were scheduled to reopen Monday.

Suffolk's two sites — at Community College campuses in Brentwood and Riverhead — were already scheduled to be closed Sunday and Monday because the county ran out of its vaccine allocation, according to county spokesman Derek Poppe.

County Executive Laura Curran said the Nassau County Health Department "has been successfully rescheduling postponed vaccination appointments to ensure everyone with an appointment gets a shot."

The county distribution centers include Nassau Community College and the Yes We Can Community Center in Westbury. Second dose appointments made for Feb. 7 at those sites have been rescheduled for Feb. 9, according to the county’s website. People will receive emails with registration links.
