TRENTON, N.J. — The winter storm that brought snow, ice and frigid temperatures across the country this week disrupted COVID-19 vaccine distribution in New Jersey, Gov. Phil Murphy said Friday.

The governor asked state-run vaccine facilities to extend hours because of the delay.

The delayed shipments mean some vaccination appointments may be canceled and rescheduled, according to the governor, though some facilities may have enough shots on hand to keep up.
