MinuteClinics open in Lincoln

Posted By: KLKN Newsroom

CVS/pharmacy stores is now including MinuteClinics in two locations in Lincoln.

These health centers specialize in family health care and can diagonose, treat and write prescriptions for common illnesses. CVS says with an aging baby boomer population, the clinics will play an important role in the delivery of health care to Nebraskans.

Local officials were the first to try out the clinic, getting their blood pressure and cholesterol levels tested.  

“If patients don’t typically go to a primary care provider, we’re a nice way to sort of enter in to the healthcare system,” Meredith Dixon with CVS said.

A third location will open later this month in Lincoln, which are the first in Nebraska. The clinics will be open 7 days a week and accept walk–ins.
