CVS 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!
To find hours and MinuteClinic locations near you check out their locator HERE.

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.

Don't know if you have a cold or the Flu?  Check out this great chart that helps you break down your symptoms to see which you most likely have.

"I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for MedImmune. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”

World Prematurity Day is November 17th. 

This is a day to help Parents fully understand the increased risks that come with premature birth and the specialized health care that preemies often require.

 Having a preemie makes that baby increases their risk of contracting a life threatening illness'. Young infants are very susceptible to infection in the early weeks of their lives, so contracting something as small as the common cold can present danger. This is especially true for babies born early, because they have underdeveloped lungs and immature immune systems.

Did you know that 79 percent of preemie moms have a baby who was hospitalized due to a severe respiratory infection?

 One virus in particular that parents of preemies should know about is respiratory syncytial virus, commonly known as RSV.

RSV: A Risk to Preemies
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a common seasonal virus, contracted by nearly all children by the age of two, and typically causes mild to moderate cold-like symptoms in healthy, full-term babies. Preterm infants, however, are born with undeveloped lungs and immature immune systems that put them at heightened risk for developing severe RSV disease, often requiring hospitalization.

RSV infection is more likely to root in premature lungs where developing airways are narrowed and especially fragile 

Preterm babies carry fewer virus-fighting antibodies—a precious gift from mom that all infants need while their own immune systems mature after birth

Key RSV Facts:
RSV occurs in epidemics each year, typically from November through March, though it can vary by geography and year-to- year

RSV disease is the leading cause of hospitalization for babies during their first year of life in the United States, with approximately 125,000 hospitalizations and up to 400 infant deaths each year

RSV disease is responsible for one of every 13 pediatrician visits and one of every 38 trips to the ER in children under the age of five

Despite being so common, many parents aren’t aware of RSV; in fact, one-third of mothers have never heard of the virus

Speak with your child’s doctor if he or she may be at high risk for RSV, as a preventive therapy may be available Know the Symptoms Contact your child’s pediatrician immediately if your child exhibits one or more of the following:

*Persistent coughing or wheezing

*Bluish color around the mouth or fingernails 

*Rapid, difficult, or gasping breaths Fever [especially if it is over 100.4°F (rectal) in infants under 3 months of age]

How Can I Help Protect My Baby From RSV?

RSV is very contagious and can be spread easily through touching, sneezing and coughing. Additionally, the virus can live on the skin and surfaces for hours. There is no treatment for RSV disease once it’s contracted, so prevention is critical. To help minimize the spread of RSV disease, all parents should:

Wash their hands and ask others to do the same 

Keep toys, clothes, blanket and sheets clean 

Avoid crowds and other young children during RSV season

  Never let anyone smoke around your baby

  Steer clear of people who are sick or who have recently been sick

Please take a moment to visit to learn more about RSV!
