The Acton Public Health Nursing Services participates in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Vaccine Program and obtains vaccinations from the state program.

Available Vaccinations

  • DTP - Diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis

A fee of $20 is charged for the administration of vaccines, but no one will be turned away for inability to pay. Our goal is to get all children and adults the vaccines they need.
