INFORMATION FROM VIDANT REGARDING PEDIATRIC COVID TESTING:
Pediatric COVID-19 testing
To help meet an ever-increasing demand, we are now pleased to offer pediatric, appointment-based COVID-19 testing to the communities we serve. If your child is sick or you’re concerned about an exposure to the virus, please call 252-816-3720 from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Friday to schedule an appointment.
Please note: For pediatric pre-operative testing, please follow the directions provided when scheduling an appointment.
Consult your pediatrician
We are providing this as another convenient option for parents and families, and encourage you to consult your child’s pediatrician as the primary resource for COVID testing and vaccination needs.
Should you arrange an appointment at Children’s, here is what you need to know: at your scheduled time, please arrive to the front entrance of the James and Connie Maynard Children’s Hospital. Drive into the circle area, park in a designated testing spot and remain in your car. Call 252-816-3716 upon arrival, and provide your child’s name, vehicle type and color. A nurse will come to your vehicle with documentation to begin the testing process. All occupants of the car need to remain masked.
