Hometown Pediatrics has been designated as an approved COVID-19 vaccine site in the state of Texas.

All persons 18 years of age and older qualify to receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. If you would like a vaccine, please contact our office to schedule an appointment at 281-292-8980. Vaccines are by appointment only, please do not arrive without an appointment.
 
For general information please go to the Texas DSHS website at COVID-19 Vaccine Information (texas.gov)
 

Rapid COVID-19 Testing

 
We continue to offer rapid COVID-19 testing to our patients & their parents when indicated. We also offer this testing to community first responders, teachers, & daycare workers. This test is performed via scheduled, drive-through testing beneath our porte-cochère. Results return in as quickly as 15-20 minutes. Please speak with our front desk for additional information.
 
In order to continue to provide optimal care for our patients while minimizing risk to patients, families, and staff, Hometown Pediatrics has implemented the following changes:
 
 If your child has experienced any illness or fever within 48 hours prior to your well-visit, please call us & report this event before coming in.
 
In order to keep our patients as safe as possible, our waiting rooms are temporarily closed. When you arrive at our clinic for your scheduled appointment, remain in your vehicle & call the main office number (281-292-8980) for further instructions. You will be prompted to meet your physician’s nurse to enter our facility through one of the side hallways & will proceed directly to the exam room.
 
Also, in order to further limit potential exposure to both families & Hometown staff, if at all possible, please have only one parent accompany your child to his or her appointment & try to keep other children safe at home.
 
Every exam room is being thoroughly sanitized after every patient.
 
All medical staff are wearing masks at all times.  All parents and patients over the age of three must wear a mask in order to been seen. Please bring a mask for yourself and your child and please keep masks on all times, even when the physician is not in the room.
 
Again, for safety reasons, we strongly recommend no eating or drinking in the exam rooms at any time.
