I get a flu shot every year since I deal with the public in my outside of the home (i.e. non-blogging) work. It’s important for me to stay protected from the flu and being out of work and sick is no fun for anyone!
This year we got our flu shots at MinuteClinic inside CVS. We signed in on the computer, giving basic information. I liked that it told us how many people were waiting ahead of us. We just browsed through the store while we waited about 10 minutes. The nurse practitioner was super nice and asked a few questions about allergies and past history of getting flu shots. Within a few minutes we received the shots and were on our way!
Here is some more information about MinuteClinic:
MinuteClinic is a division of CVS Caremark Corporation (NYSE: CVS), the largest pharmacy health care provider in the United States. MinuteClinic launched the first retail health care centers in the United States in 2000 and is the first provider to establish a national presence, with approximately 600 locations across 25 states.
By creating a health care delivery model that responds to consumer demand, MinuteClinic makes access to high-quality medical treatment easier for more Americans. Our practitioners have seen more than 12 million patient visits, with a 95% customer satisfaction rating.
Our approach to healthcare:
High Quality – certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants who can diagnose, treat and write prescriptions when medically appropriate
Affordable – most insurance plans accepted; cash, checks and credit cards also welcome
Convenient – no appointment needed, open 7 days a week, evenings and weekends, and located inside your neighborhood CVS/pharmacy store
Coordinated – visit summary sent to your primary care provider, with permission, or assistance finding a provider, if you don’t have one.
The process was such an easy one and we were in and out in just a few minutes! I won’t hesitate to go back to MinuteClinic for future shots or health care needs!
CVS MinuteClinic provided my husband I with a free flu shot this year. I was not required to write this post. All opinions are my own.
