Respecting patients and providing upstanding service

Too many people have become disillusioned with medical care. For example, they must wait seemingly forever to get seen and fork over an arm and a leg for the privilege. They have no idea going in how much their treatment may cost and if their insurance might accept it.

These issues aren’t as much of a concern at our MinuteClinic®. We welcome walk-in patients seven days a week, meaning that you could be seen within minutes after noticing a weird rash or realizing that you burned yourself a bit while cooking. Look over the approximate wait time online to see how long you might need to wait. You can even check our price list online before coming in to see how much your treatment might cost. We welcome uninsured patients, and if you do have insurance, you can run a preliminary check online to see if we accept your plan (we accept most!).

It gets better. If you prefer to plan ahead instead of walk in, you can frequently schedule same-day and different-day visits via the clinic website.

Other benefits of our clinic include:

  • Location inside CVS Pharmacy® for one-stop access to prescriptions, over-the-counter medications and other health care items
  • Online payment portal and mix of payment options—check, cash and credit card
  • Availability evenings and weekends
  • Option to have a visit summary sent to your regular doctor (with your permission) so everyone is on the same page

About the Flu (Influenza)

Influenza is an infectious respiratory disease. Generally, the flu may resolve on its own. However, if the flu goes untreated, you may be at risk for complications that can be life-threatening. Those that might be at a higher risk of severe flu complications include children under 5, adults over 65, pregnant women, and people with chronic illnesses or compromised immune systems. If you fall into any of these categories, it is essential that you take strides towards flu prevention by getting your flu shot at MinuteClinic. The flu shot works by exposing you to an inactive flu virus and the flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body after vaccination. These antibodies will help to protect you if you are exposed to the flu virus. Essentially, getting a flu shot prepares your body to fight the flu.

Why Get A Flu Shot?

Getting vaccinated helps to protect you and the people around you. Influenza sends a countless number of patients into hospitals each year – don’t be one of them. There are two types of flu shots – a seasonal vaccine for adults and children (preservative-free available, upon request) and a high dose vaccine (for ages 65+). While you can take preventative measures, getting immunized with the influenza vaccine is your best defense against the flu. Each year, new strains of the flu develop. While you may have gotten a flu shot in the past, you may not be protected from the new strands. Although flu vaccines may not be 100% effective, it is still the best defense against the virus. Don’t fall victim to the flu this year – stop by MinuteClinic and get your flu shot today!
