FOXBOROUGH, MASS. (WHDH) – Phase 2 in the state’s vaccination rollout process begins Monday but the snow heavily impacted scheduling at some vaccine distribution sites.

Gillette Stadium opened at 8 a.m. but appointments after 3 p.m. will need to be rescheduled for later in the week as Foxboro braces for up to 14 inches of snow.

“We’ve done already close to 350 people out of the 480 that were scheduled so we have almost everybody done by the middle of the day which is absolutely fantastic,” Rodrigo Martinez of the CIC Health Vaccination team said.

Fenway Park opened an hour early at 8 a.m.

Those who booked an appointment between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the ballpark were asked to come an hour early. People with an appointment after 1 p.m. were told to get there as early as 9 a.m. instead or reschedule by email.

The Reggie Lewis Center in Roxbury was supposed to begin vaccinations Monday but it closed due to the storm.

People with appointments will be automatically rescheduled for Feb. 8.

The center is set to open Tuesday at noon.

Those 75 years and older can start receiving the vaccine Monday.
