There are times when a child needs immediate care for a minor illness or injury, and this is when pediatric urgent care is so helpful.

When your child needs pediatric urgent care in Anaheim CA, and for quick and convenient care, come see us at SoCal Urgent Care!
When should I take my child over to urgent care?
If your child needs a physical exam, like an annual physical or one for school, you take him or her to see your family physician or pediatrician. These professionals can also easily handle immunizations and other general pediatric health matters. If your child needs care for a serious and life-threatening illness or injury, you go to the emergency room. But there are times when going to pediatric urgent care is the best option over the other two!
Pediatric urgent care is for non-life-threatening but urgent health issues. An example is when a child gets a minor sports injury or has strep throat. It’s necessary to treat issues like these quickly, as they can quickly become worse. But pediatric urgent care can do much more; they can also provide a physical exam when a child needs one right away for school or to join a new sports team. Or let’s say your child is behind on his or her immunization schedule. Pediatric urgent care can provide a shot, like a flu shot, right away. You can go to pediatric urgent care without having to make an appointment first.
