  • Head injuries with a loss of consciousness

  • A baby younger than three months with breathing trouble or fever
  • Severe and unusual headache
  • Seizures
  • Emergency childbirth
  • Bleeding that does not stop
  • Drug overdose
  • Poisoning
  • Life-threatening injuries
  • Severe allergic reactions

Go to the walk-in clinic if you have:
