Successful COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic Held This Week

We are pleased to announce the success of a vaccine clinic held this week for eligible Acton Housing Authority and home bound residents.

In total, 118 doses of the COVID-19 vaccination were administered on Thursday and Friday. Of that amount, 21 doses were administered through a mobile clinic that visited home bound seniors.

The doses were specifically allotted only for those 75-years-old and older who became eligible on Monday, Feb. 1 through Phase Two of the state’s vaccination distribution plan. 

The clinic was the result of a multi-department collaboration between the Town of Acton, Acton Board of Health, Acton Nursing Services, Council on Aging, Acton Fire Department, Acton Police Department, Acton Emergency Management and the Acton Housing Authority.

The Acton Board of Health is seeking additional vaccination allotments and will notify the community promptly if more vaccines are provided by the state for future clinics. To make sure that your contact information is on file as the town continues to plan for future potential clinics, please be sure to fill out the Vaccine Interest Form referenced below.

The state has not yet announced when individuals 65-years-old and older and those with two or more comorbidities will be able to receive the vaccine. This will be announced when more information is available about additional doses of the vaccine provided to the state by the federal government. 

The general public is not expected to be eligible to receive the vaccine until April. To review the full vaccination distribution timeline, click here

Acton COVID-19 Vaccine Interest Form

The Town of Acton has created a COVID-19 Vaccine Interest Form. Acton residents or those who work in Acton who meet the eligibility criteria for Phase One or the first two priority groups of Phase Two (individuals age 75+ and individuals age 65+ or with two or more comorbidities) and are interested in receiving the vaccine are asked to complete this form. The form will be used to notify respondents of their eligibility only. It is not a form for reservations, a waitlist, or appointments. 

You may fill out the form on behalf of someone else. If you are inquiring about the eligibility of more than one person, please fill out one form for each person.

Eligibility notifications and updates will be sent via email. If you don't have access to email and don't have someone who can submit the form on your behalf, the town will call you at the number provided on the form.

If you do not have access to the internet to submit the form, please contact the Acton Town Services Hotline at 978-929-6600. 

As additional priority subgroups are expected to become eligible during Phase Two, the survey will be updated and redistributed.

Town officials will continue to monitor the situation and share updates, such as specific dates of when the vaccine may become available to more people, as that information becomes available.

The Acton Public Health Department encourages everyone to stay informed regarding the COVID-19 vaccination process. The following resources are recommended for the most up-to-date information:
