MinuteClinic is a convenience care clinic staffed by nurse practitioners and physician associates who can administer common vaccinations, provide wellness services, diagnose certain common acute and chronic conditions and illnesses, and can write prescriptions, if medically appropriate. MinuteClinic is not “Urgent Care”, and thus not for more serious illnesses or significant injuries, or care needing x-ray or stiches. To confirm MinuteClinic services, visit https://www.cvs.com/minuteclinic.
Urgent cares are not intended to address emergency or life-threatening medical conditions. Please call 911 or go to the emergency room under those circumstances.
The emergency room is for the treatment of life-threatening conditions which require immediate medical attention. If not a true emergency, you may be responsible for the entire cost of the visit.
