CVS MinuteClinic...one-stop shop for cough-cold and flu needs
“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for CVS MinuteClinic. I received promotional items as a thank you for participating”
The MinuteClinic is a walk-in clinic located in select CVS/pharmacy stores in 28 states and DC. They are open 7 days a week with evening hours and you don’t need to make an appointment!

The MinuteClinic is perfect for when you have a small ailment such as the flu, strep-throat, pinkeye, UTI's and ear infections and need to see someone so you can get proper treatment. At MinuteClinic you will be seen by board-certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants. They will diagnosis, treat and prescribe medicines when appropriate.
The Minute Clinic is a convenient an affordable option, especially during the winter months when your primary care doctors office may not be able to provide a timely appointment and the ER and urgent care centers have longer wait times and higher costs.
Plus it's one-stop shop for cough-cold and flu needs. You can visit MinuteClinic to vaccinate, diagnosis, treat and prescribe for cough-cold and flu and other minor ailments then equip your house with wintertime cough-cold essentials at CVS. Who doesn't want a one-stop shop!
I find MinuteClinic especially convenient because dragging 2 kids to the doctors office/ urgent care and then to a pharmacy or drug store after is quite daunting. I want to get them diagnosed and get what we need to get them well and get home as quickly as possible and as cheaply as possible. My family and I choose MinuteClinic/CVS for my cough-cold and flu needs.
