Traveling and Need Health Care? Try MinuteClinic!

You’re on the perfect vacation.

Beach chair. Sand. A warm breeze and a good book.

You lift your gaze from the page to watch the waves crash on the shoreline.

That’s when you notice it: A bright red blotch on your arm.

Is that sunburn? An allergic reaction? Rash? Bug bite? 

You have questions. MinuteClinic has answers.

With more than 1,100 locations in CVS Pharmacies and Target stores in 33 states, MinuteClinic provides treatment for more than 125 illnesses and injuries when you’re out of town and can’t get to your primary care doctor.

In addition to video visits and other coverage options, CDPHP members on all plans now have access to MinuteClinic while traveling.

MinuteClinic combines quality and convenience when you need it most – at a price comparable to what you’d pay at your primary care doctor.

When you’re away from home and need to see a medical provider, MinuteClinic provides a wide range of services:

  • Minor illnesses
  • Minor injuries
  • Screenings and monitoring
  • Skin conditions
  • Travel health
  • Vaccinations and injections
  • Wellness and physicals
  • Women’s service

MinuteClinic is open seven days a week, including evenings and weekends. Walk-ins are welcome, or make an appointment through the CVS pharmacy app.

You can also skip the waiting room by viewing wait times online and planning your visit before you come in.

For added convenience, get treatment and pick up your prescription in one place.

Lastly, MinuteClinic can communicate with your primary care doctor to ensure he or she is aware of treatment you’ve received and any necessary follow-up care.
