It’s a New Year for a Healthier You – CVS MinuteClinic #MC

Shares

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for CVS/pharmacy MinuteClinic. I received promotional items as a thank you for participating.

I’m all too familiar with the CVS MinuteClinic. Hoping that my only visit this year would be a visit to receive my flu shot, I found myself sitting in a CVS MinuteClinic just yesterday.

Our family has been passing around viruses, colds and when they finally reach me I seem to get it the worst. With signs of Bronchitis lingering around for the last week, I decided to stop and see a doctor.

With not a lot of time on my hands, I knew that CVS MinuteClinic would be the quickest option. So I stopped in, signed in at their kiosk and was first in line. My wait was less than 5 minutes and I was brought in to see the nurse practitioner. 

10 minutes later, she had me evaluated, collected my copay, sent me to the pharmacy counter for a prescription and I was out there in less than 20 minutes with my medication in hand. I love how easy it is to get in and get out, perfect for a busy mom’s life!

What I didn’t know, and what I was excited to hear about, were the new health and wellness programs that the CVS MinuteClinic started offering this year.

The year of 2014 is the year that I’m doing better things for myself, including losing weight. I got my labs back from the doctor and while they weren’t horrible, they could quickly get that way if no action is taken.

One way to reach your health and wellness goals in 2014 is with the CVS MinuteClinic weight loss and smoking cessation programs.
