Definatly take him to the doctor asap. I had salmonella,and needed antibiotic. They should check whats causing the vomiting and diarrhea. And most of all give him enough liquid that he doesnt dehydrate! Get some powerade or something with electrolyte to drink.

Call the nurse hotline/after hours and ask them.
That has happened to me twice, once was alcohol poisoning (I was 22), doubt you kid has that. The other was due to E. Coli. That seems more feasible for a kid to get.
Check for fever then call the doc. Have all the symptoms written down and when the last time he threw up/diarrhea-d.
Good luck. Stay calm and keep him as comfortable as possible until you know what's going on.
