Jasmin Darling, M.D.

Jasmin Darling spent the first two decades of her life in Ohio before moving to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where she taught at One Planet International School. Returning to Ohio for medical school, she volunteered in a local student-run free medical clinic and enjoyed several medical mission trips to Guatemala and Honduras. Empowering all children to reach their full potential is her passion and purpose. Dr. Darling and her husband had always planned to live in the Boston area and were thrilled when she had the opportunity to train at the Floating Hospital for Children. She lives locally with her husband, son, and two dogs and enjoys spending time with her family exploring New England and traveling internationally.

 Yellow Fever Vaccine Shortage

Sanofi Pasteur, the manufacturer of the only yellow fever vaccine (YF-Vax) licensed in the United States, has announced that YF-Vax for civilian use is now totally unavailable from the manufacturer until mid-2018 because of delays in the production process. However, YF-VAX might be available at some clinics for several months, until remaining supplies at those sites are used up. Travelers can find clinics with remaining doses of YF-VAX, by visiting the yellow fever vaccination clinic search page.

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.
