ALBANY, NY. (WCAX) - Weather conditions around the country have slowed vaccine shipments to at least 32 states, including New York.

Governor Andrew Cuomo says the federal government is blaming the delays on winter storms nationwide. He says only a limited number of doses left shipping facilities on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Now, the state health department is working with local departments to make sure the effects are minimal, but some appointments will likely need to be rescheduled.
