Our Commitment to the COVID-19 Vaccine
There is currently a shortage of COVID vaccine for children under 12yo. We, therefore, have only a limited number of clinic appointments and will not consistently have it available at office visits. We appreciate your patience.**
Acton Medical Associates is proud to provide preventative vaccinations to keep your child well. For children under 3, it is difficult to obtain a COVID-19 vaccination in retail pharmacies. To help protect our pediatric population from vaccine preventable illness, we have partnered with the State of Massachusetts to administer COVID-19 vaccinations in our office for pediatric patients under 19 years of age.
We are offering the Moderna Spikevax 2023-2024 formula for patients 6 months – 18 years of age. This will be administered in our Acton office in clinics that are available to schedule online through the link below.
For our patients 19 years of age and older, the COVID-19 vaccination is recommended. The timing is up to your discretion but should be administered at least 2 months after your last COVID-19 vaccination. We recommend scheduling with your local retail pharmacy as we are not planning to offer this vaccine in our offices at this time.
The side effect profile of the Moderna Spikevax 2023-2024 formula has not changed. Prepare for your vaccination by reviewing FDA Fact Sheet
