What services does this CVS offer?

About this Pharmacy & Drug Store


Located a short drive away from The University of Chicago, our pharmacy is here to help anyone receive first-class medical assistance. There is a lot more people can do at our location than they may realize. Whether you need a flu shot or require more information about a specific medical condition, our CVS Pharmacy® wants to help.


Plenty of pharmacy services to use online


For starters, people should seriously consider creating an online account with us. There is so much you can do with an account, such as viewing financial summaries. You can even take advantage of mobile services by downloading our app by texting “App” to 287-277.


Come into our 24-hour store


There is no need to fret when you rely on CVS Pharmacy®. Our retail store is open 24 hours a day, so if it is not possible for you to swing by in the afternoon, then come by in the middle of the day. We will be here well past when the sun sets to help the people of Chicago.


A drug store with everything


You can always depend on us to keep the shelves stocked with the products you use all the time. Allergy medicine, deodorant, feminine care products, weight loss pills, perfumes and many other items are always for sale.


Our photo center will help you create gifts to remember


We have a photo center in this location, which will print out any pictures you want. In some cases, after you send us a photo, we will have your product available that very same day. You can also drive over when you need a new passport photo taken. Make sure to come by well before your passport expires, so you will be ready for your next vacation.


Schedule an appointment at our MinuteClinic®


Instead of going to see a doctor, you may be able to find the help you are looking for at our MinuteClinic®. We accept most insurance plans, and we offer an array of medical services. We can help treat minor injuries, such as sprains and bruises. We can provide you with an overall physical and administer immunizations.


You can expect the same quality of care here as at a doctor’s office because our nurse practitioners have received advanced education and training. Our physician assistants are licensed professionals who can perform many of the same actions as a doctor. You will still want to visit a hospital for an emergency, but our CVS Pharmacy® can serve as an advantageous resource.


We accept SNAP and WIC


The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, was designed to help low income families purchase nutritious food. The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children is another federal assistance program to aid low-income pregnant and breastfeeding women. Our pharmacy location on East 53rd Street is proud to accept payments from both programs to help people in need in the community.


We want to help you
