Six vaccine mega-sites in New Jersey will remain closed Tuesday due to the winter storm pummeling the Northeast, Governor Phil Murphy announced Monday. On Sunday, Murphy had announced the sites would be closed on Monday in anticipation of the storm.

According to Murphy, all scheduled vaccinations should still take place sometime this week. No new vaccinations will be scheduled through the state’s vaccination call center “until the storm’s impact is assessed,” Murphy added. 

Meanwhile, another inch or two of snow may fall in the Philadelphia region, but the brunt of it has already fallen, leading to near 2 feet in some parts of the Lehigh Valley and just over 6″ in the city of Philadelphia.

A Winter Storm Warning will continue for Philadelphia and surrounding counties, Berks, the Lehigh Valley and Poconos until 4 p.m., CBS Philly reports.
