When to go to a pediatric walk in clinic

Pediatric walk in clinics can not care for urgent or life-threatening conditions. You will need to make an appointment for well-child exams, immunizations and care of chronic conditions (like diabetes and asthma).

Here is a basic rule of thumb to help you decide the right place to get care. Go to:

  • the nearest emergency room (ER) or call 911 if you have any signs or symptoms of a life-threatening condition—emergency departments are open 24/7
  • urgent care for non-life-threatening illness, infection or injury, when your clinic is closed or you can’t get a convenient appointment
  • walk in care for a less expensive option for the treatment of minor illness, injury or skin issues.
