Urgent Care

Harvard Vanguard's Urgent Care services are focused on providing complete care to patients with acute illnesses or injuries that require prompt attention but are not life threatening emergencies.  Urgent care appointments are pre-scheduled visits.

Need urgent care on a weekday?

If an urgent care appointment is needed during a weekday, call your doctor's office and see if an appointment time is available for you to be seen that day. If there is not, patients have the option of going to Harvard Vanguard’s Kenmore practice, as they offer weekday urgent care hours in addition to their weekend and holiday hours. 

 

Kenmore Monday - Friday: 8:00am – 8:00pm

Feeling ill and need urgent care on a weekend or holiday?

Weekend and holiday urgent care is available to all Harvard Vanguard patients at 6 of our practice locations:  Braintree, Chelmsford, Kenmore, Peabody, Somerville, and Wellesley.

To make an urgent care appointment on a weekend or holiday, call your doctor's office. Even if your doctor’s location does not offer urgent care hours, your call will be automatically transferred to a Harvard Vanguard practice in the same region that does have urgent care so you can schedule an appointment at a site convenient for you.

Need medical advice after hours?

All you have to do is call your doctor's office.  After regular office hours, follow the prompts to connect with our team of Harvard Vanguard medical staff who provide medical advice and information by phone.

If necessary, our staff can consult an on-call Harvard Vanguard physician, advise you to visit the emergency room, or schedule you for a weekend/holiday urgent care appointment at one of the practices with Urgent Care.

Please note: if you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911 or your local emergency number immediately.  If you receive care at an emergency room, please call your primary care physician's office so we can follow up on your care.
