ROCHESTER – Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that vaccine appointments scheduled for Friday, March 26, at the State-FEMA-run mass vaccination site at the former Kodak Hawkeye parking lot in Rochester will be postponed due to severe weather forecasted to affect the area. The appointments will be rescheduled for Saturday, Sunday and Monday, March 27-29.

“Given the Friday weather forecast for Rochester and projected winds of up to 60 miles per hour, we are postponing vaccine appointments at the site of the former Kodak Hawkeye parking lot in order to protect New Yorkers getting vaccinated and site staff,” Governor Cuomo said. “This vaccine is about protecting public health — and we have to make sure everyone stays safe as shots are administered. As we have done before in the face of inclement weather, we are going to reschedule all Friday appointments for the site and make sure no one misses their dose.”

New Yorkers with appointments scheduled for Friday at the site will receive an email or text message rescheduling their vaccination.

All of these appointments are for second doses, and rescheduled appointment dates will be well within CDC’s guidance for the timeline for second doses. If that new appointment time does not work for an individual given the change in day, they will be provided with a contact number to identify a different time that may work better for the individual.
