NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) — Coronavirus vaccine appointments scheduled for Friday at the Community College of Rhode Island’s Newport campus have been postponed a day because of snow.

Newport Mayor Jeanne-Marie Napolitano said the Friday cancellations were due to the inclement weather concerns.

The Newport Daily News reports that the vaccination site at CCRI is a collaboration between the city and Middletown.

The town on its website said people with approved vaccination appointments for Friday should instead show up at the CCRI campus at the same scheduled time on Saturday.

The state is currently vaccination residents age 75 and older by appointment only.
