Child Health Resource Center - Healthy Kids at FastMed

Welcome to the Child Health Resource Center

Is there anything more important than the health of your children? When your child is sick, you shouldn't have to wait until Monday or sit through a holiday, watching their discomfort. Fortunately, you don't have to: FastMed Urgent Care walk-in clinics are your neighborhood medical centers open 365 days of the year. If you think your child's condition is life-threatening, call 9-1-1 and head to the emergency room. If not, a FastMed Urgent Care clinic is a cost effective and easy alternative. We treat ear infections, allergies, and sore throats.  We have a rapid protocol for strep testing that returns results within ten minutes.  We offer vaccinations and flu shots, stitch up cuts, examine sprains, and x-ray breaks. We operate family practices in several North Carolina locations, as well as sports medicine practices in AZ.

Children's Health

Protecting your children begins with an immunization schedule to prevent a myriad of common diseases. Every parent makes his or her own decision about vaccinations; however, the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention provides parents some excellent information to make those choices. Children are building their immune systems and can be harder hit by illnesses like the flu. It's recommended that any child over 6-months old get a flu shot. Each year an average of 20,000 children five-years old and younger are hospitalized due to complications from the flu.  FastMed Urgent Care is your neighborhood medical clinic. We're here to help when your child is ill or has a minor injury. We take most major insurance plans and offer a discount program for families without insurance to manage their healthcare costs.
