EYEWITNESS NEWS (WBRE/WYOU-TV) — With winter weather continuing across the state, vaccine deliveries are being pushed back leaving healthcare facilities no choice but to delay administering the doses to patients.

According to a news release, Geisinger says it will be contacting patients whose appointments need to be changed.

“If your appointment is not until next week, your myGeisinger account may not reflect a change right away. Your account will update and you will be contacted over the next several days. You may also see an updated appointment date and time in your myGeisinger account prior to receiving a phone call, email or text message,” the release stated.

Geisinger also addressed those waiting on their second dose of the vaccine.

“If your second dose is being rescheduled, be advised that the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) has issued updated guidance that it is safe to receive your second dose as
many as 42 days after your first. Geisinger is committed to honoring all existing appointments as
supplies allow,”
