***There are weekday nurse appointments available at all three offices for flu vaccination. Please call for availability.
PLEASE NOTE: Flu mist will not be available this year due to CDC recommendations. CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted that live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV), also known as the “nasal spray” flu vaccine, should NOT be used during the 2017-2018 flu season because it is less effective. CDC conducts vaccine effectiveness studies each season to estimate flu vaccine effectiveness. The data from 2015-2016 follows two previous seasons (2013-2014 and 2014-2015) showing poor and/or lower than expected vaccine effectiveness for FluMist vaccine. ACIP continues to recommend annual flu vaccination for everyone 6 months and older. For more information go to www.cdc.gov. All Pediatric flu vaccine for children 6 months-18 years will be supplied by the Department of Public Health this flu season. Pediatric appointments will be scheduled based on vaccine availability.

Change in Throat Culture Visits
Acton Medical has changed their informal process of throat culture visits. In an effort to improve the quality of care you receive, we are moving to a more structured nurse visit. The nurse visit will include a clinical evaluation and assessment to determine the appropriate level of treatment needed. We have appointment times available at all locations for your convenience. Please call ahead so we can better serve your needs.
