Coronavirus Update and Testing Hotline

Urgent Care for Children is performing curbside COVID-19 testing for patients ages 0 to 21, which will be sent to a third-party lab. To schedule coronavirus testing,
please call our COVID-19 hotline at (205) 848-2273.

At Urgent Care for Children, we were proud to be one of the first in Alabama to begin assisting with testing for COVID-19 early last week, but we know that some were unable to be tested under our strict compliance with the CDC’s guidelines and testing supply shortages. We are happy to share that with better test kit availability, we are now able to test many more patients!


We have now opened a free COVID-19 Hotline that allows you to quickly call for information and schedule curbside coronavirus testing for your child. Call (205) 848-2273, and one of our team members will gladly answer any questions and get you set up for testing.


Patients are encouraged to take advantage of our telemedicine platform to speak with one of our experienced pediatric providers from the comfort and safety of their own home! Many illnesses or issues can be completely assessed and treated remotely, and if the provider decides your kiddo needs lab work or a doctor needs a peek inside your child’s ear, our express LapHopper pass lets you pop into your closest UC4C location just for testing. Then you are sent home, and their medication is called into your pharmacy within minutes.


We continue to see patients for everyday illnesses and injuries at all five Urgent Care for Children locations. Please note that if you have any cold or flu-like symptoms, you will be asked to wait in your car, for the safety of our other patients, and a provider with protective equipment will come to see you curbside (please call the clinic front desk when you arrive in the parking lot). 

For non-emergent problems, Urgent Care for Children offers a great alternative to emergency rooms. 

Thank you for your continued patience and support as we deliver our promise of providing quality care with less waiting all 365 days of the year!
