I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for CVS MinuteClinic. I received promotional items as a thank you for participating. #MC
Everyone knows that scheduling doctor appointments can be frustrating – especially when you’re sick and need to see someone pronto. My doctor’s office rarely has anything same day, and if they do, it’s at an inconvenient time for me.
Last winter, I ended up with a sinus infection & cold and my doctor couldn’t see me until the evening. It was too long to wait – especially since I had two month old twins. I needed to see someone much sooner. That’s when my sister, a nurse, told me to get myself to CVS MinuteClinic.
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! MinuteClinic and CVS are a great 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 equip your house with wintertime cough-cold essentials at CVS.
Some more info:
- Board-certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants are able to treat and prescribe (when clinically appropriate) for a variety of common family illnesses, such as strep throat, ear infections, pink eye and UTIs.
- MinuteClinic offers a wide range of vaccinations for children, adolescents, teens and adults including flu, pertussis (whooping cough), meningitis and others.
- Insurance accepted! No insurance, they accept cash, check or credit card. Best of all, it’s affordable!
- Want to keep your family doctor informed? They can help with that too! MinuteClinic shares visit summaries with your primary care provider (with patient permission).
Going to the CVS MinuteClinic that day was the best decision I could have made.There was no line and check-in was easy. The nurse practitioner who saw me was really accomodating and understanding that I had newborn twins with me. She got me in and out – medicine in hand.
Added to that, the convenience of being in a CVS store was great. While I waited for my prescription, I was able to pick up everything else I needed.
Sure, there will always be things I want to see my doctor for, but for colds, the flu and other illnesses that can’t wait, I like the idea that someone is literally right around the corner, available to see me.
