New Yorkers braved the heavy snow Sunday to get to COVID-19 vaccine sites that remained open — but for some it was a wasted trip.

“Low supply,” said high school teacher Sarah Levy as she left the Gotham Health clinic in Fort Greene, in tears after being turned away.

“There are no first vaccines here today and they said that they had given me a notification about that. I didn’t receive a notification.”

Many COVID-19 vaccine sites in the five boroughs — including most state-run sites — were shut Sunday due to the snow, but some remained open.

Levy said she had already had to reschedule her appointment once and was devastated to do so again.

“It’s just a travesty not to protect the people who are putting themselves on the line to take care of other people,” she said. “We all should be taken care of as Americans, as human beings. I’m just in grief about this entire process.”

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Saturday that state-run vaccine locations in downstate New York would be shut down due to the weather, but that some, including Yankee Stadium, the Javits Center, and Aqueduct Racetrack would remain open.
