Seattle Children’s offers 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. 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 appointments are limited and cannot be guaranteed due to high demand.
