From the business of the New York State Government Chamber:

“It has come to our consideration that an unpublished scheduling hyperlink was shared without the need of authorization on social media this week, allowing some New Yorkers to make vaccine appointments for state-operated web pages that are not presently open and have been not having appointments at Binghamton, Buffalo, Plattsburgh, Potsdam, Stony Brook and Utica. Out of an abundance of caution we referred this concern to the Inspector General. As this pandemic has shown, equity and equal access are critical in distributing the vaccine, and to assure these principles are followed all unauthorized appointments have been voided — we are at the moment getting in touch with all people who utilised the unauthorized connection to inform them of the predicament. We will carry on to safeguard all New Yorkers’ details and be certain equivalent accessibility to the vaccine for anyone eligible. As a reminder, the only way to indication up for vaccinations at State-operated destinations is by means of the Department of Health’s Am I Eligible internet site.”
