Pharmacy Healthcare Clinics


CVS Pharmacy MinuteClinic® walk-in medical clinics are staffed by nurse practitioners and physician assistants who specialize in family health care. Caring for children and adults, every day, there is no appointment needed.

Prices are stated on their websites. Search for a location nearest you. Most clinics are open until 7 PM.

Nurse Practioners and assistants handle the medical care:

  • Diagnose, treat and write prescriptions for common family illnesses such as strep throat, bladder infections, pink eye, and infections of the ears, nose and throat
  • Provide common vaccinations for flu, pneumonia, pertussis and hepatitis, among others
  • Treat minor wounds, abrasions, joint sprains, and skin conditions such as poison ivy, ringworm, lice and acne
  • Provide a wide range of wellness services including TB testing, sports and camp physicals, and lifestyle programs such as smoking cessation and a medically based weight loss program
  • Offer routine lab tests, instant results and education for those with diabetes, high cholesterol or high blood pressure
  • Provide care to adults and children 18 months and older for most services
  • Share records with primary care provider with patient's permission

There are 33 states with CVS Pharmacy Minute Clinics, and more on the way. Use Minute Clinics as an alternate to emergency care or even Urgent Care. Common illnesses while on the road can be handled at a Minute or Health Clinic for a fraction of the cost charged by traditional services.

Walgreen's Health Clinics in 17 states with about the same services.

Reviews for specific locations are also available on the Internet. It would be wise to read these first before walking into the clinic.
