Vanderbilt Children's After-Hours Clinics
When your child gets sick or has an injury after normal office hours, you can rest assured that quality care is available. Vanderbilt Children’s After-Hours Clinics offer urgent care for non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries in children of all ages. However, we encourage you to call your pediatrician first.
If your child experiences a serious, life-threatening medical emergency, call 911 right away, or go directly to the closest emergency room.
