Hi Vickie,

Does he have a high fever, trouble breathing, etc.?  If YES, take him to the ER now.  If NOT, see his doctor tomorrow.

ER's are not the best place to be treated.  The staff are often overworked and in a hurry to get you out of there. 

A high white cell count indicates an infection.  What WAS the count?
