High temperatures, vomiting, stomach aches, congestion and sometimes blood. These are some of the symptoms parents dread as they are usually followed by the question: “Where should I take my child?” To alleviate some of the stress this age-old question brings, we created a collection of wintertime blogs to help parents and caregivers determine when to take a child to the Emergency Center vs. Urgent Care. Any time your family needs to seek medical care, Texas Children's Emergency Centers and Texas Children’s Urgent Care clinics are here for you through every emergent or urgent ailment or illness.
