Welcome to Mesquite Pediatrics
Flu vaccine is here! Click on our Flu Vaccines page for more information and to schedule your appointment.
COVID-19 Vaccine update: the FDA has approved the new Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 vaccine for people 12 years of age and up and we we expect it to arrive at our office soon. For now, we are not scheduling anyone 12 years or older for COVID-19 vaccines until we know when our supply will arrive. The original Pfizer vaccine is still the recommended formulation for children 6 months through 11 years of age, so we are still scheduling patients in that age range. It may be months before the newer version is approved for younger ages, so we still do recommend this vaccine in that age group. Go to our COVID-19 Vaccines page to schedule.
If the links to the patient portal on this page keep going to our old portal (Intelichart), it's probably because your device has an old version saved in its cache. If you clear your cache, that should fix the problem. Or you can just click here: New Portal

If you have questions about COVID-19 vaccines, see our FAQ for more information, or go to our COVID-19 Vaccines page to schedule an appointment.
Testing - We have rapid COVID-19 tests available at our office, though supplies are often limited. We do not test people who are not our patients and we cannot test parents. See our COVID-19 rapid test page for more information. To get a test, your child will first have an appointment with the doctor, who will determine if testing is appropriate.
Isolation and Quarantine - we've written a handout to help people navigate this often confusion subject. Click HERE to download it. More information is also available on the CDC website at their CDC Isolation and Quarantine page.
