Seattle Children’s offers online video visits for minor illnesses and injuries through Virtual Urgent Care. You can now access our expert, pediatric urgent care from the comfort of your own home or another location in Washington state, from Seattle to Spokane, Bellingham to Yakima, Olympia to the Tri-Cities. We see select symptoms through virtual urgent care. When scheduling an appointment, a symptom checker will determine if your child is eligible for a video visit.
Use Urgent Care for minor illnesses and injuries when your child’s doctor’s office is closed or your child doesn’t have a doctor. Urgent care is the right choice for kids and teens with minor problems, including strains and sprains, pink eye, minor cuts and bruises, vomiting, diarrhea and dehydration, earaches, minor asthma attacks, mild abdominal pain and urinary tract infections.
Urgent Care appointments are not for medical emergencies. If your child’s illness or injury is life-threatening, call 911.
Same-day appointments are available to schedule beginning at midnight. All available appointment times are listed online. Walk-in visits are limited and cannot be guaranteed due to high demand.
If our Urgent Care clinics are full and your child is in urgent need of care, here is a list of local emergency departments (PDF) (Arabic) (Simplified Chinese) (Somali) (Spanish) (Vietnamese) near our Urgent Care locations.
What you need to know about visiting a Seattle Children's Urgent Care clinic.
We fax notes from your child’s Urgent Care visit to your child’s primary care provider within 24 hours. If your child was seen at one of our Urgent Care locations within the last 48 hours and you have questions about your visit, please call 206-987-2211 during our clinic hours of operation. If you need an interpreter, call 866-583-1527 and ask for “Urgent Care scheduling.” Please note: we cannot provide medical advice over the phone.
If it has been longer than 48 hours since you were seen through Urgent Care or you need medical advice for your child, please contact your primary care provider or medical insurance nurse line.
Please note that we do not offer separate COVID-19 testing in Urgent Care. You may schedule an Urgent Care visit to have us check your child’s symptoms. At that time, a provider may order a COVID-19 test as part of your child's regular Urgent Care visit.
