10:13 pm: The 24/7 vaccination site at the Brooklyn Army Terminal has closed after running out of doses, a City Hall spokesman confirmed on Sunday.
According to the spokesperson, the site has been temporarily closed, but it is unclear when it will reopen. The NY Post reported it was closed for the second day in a row on Saturday.
The site first opened last Sunday, becoming the first 24/7 vaccination site with the Bathgate post station site in the Bronx.

In another snafu at the state’s vaccination site, some 20,000 appointments were canceled after the scheduling website was shared before going live.
