We are here for you!
We are currently experiencing unprecedented call volumes in both offices.
We appreciate your patience as we work hard to answer all questions in a timely manner.
As always, our goal is to provide guidance and treatment to every child in the familiar comfort of their medical home.
Our team cares deeply for you, your family, and the work we are doing.

COVID-19 vaccines for children as young as 6 months are now available through our offices.
We have Pfizer (3-dose series for ages 6 months to 4 years ONLY) and Moderna (2-dose series for ages 6 months through 5 years).
If you would like to have your child vaccinated in our Portsmouth office during a weekday nurse visit, please call our offices to request an appointment.
If you would prefer to get an earliest available appointment at a different location, click here to find a vaccine appointment near you.
Please note that per these guidelines, children who cannot or will not wear a well-fitting medical face mask when in public locations should isolate/quarantine for 10 days. As most children are either too young to mask OR currently having snack/lunch indoors in conditions that do not allow them to maintain social distancing while unmasked to eat, Pediatric Associates continues to recommend 10 days of isolation if COVID-19 positive and 10 days of quarantine for close contacts.
Pediatric Associates has same-day in-house molecular/PCR testing capabilities in our Hampton & Portsmouth offices.
Any COVID-19 PCRs that cannot be run in office will be sent out to Seacoast Pathology for processing.
If you have further questions about testing, please call our offices.
What about antigen tests? Click here for an excellent summary of their utility and limitations in the wake of the Omicron variant – including why (and how) to swab your child’s throat as well as their nose! If your child tests positive on an at-home antigen test, consider this a true positive and send us a photo through the patient portal so that we can document your child’s COVID-19 infection and report the result to the state.
For the most up-to-date information on COVID-19, please visit CDC or the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services.
