CVS MinuteClinic is a retail clinic inside of CVS Pharmacy in Mary Esther and is open today from 8:30am to 7:30pm. They are located at 71 Mary Esther Blvd and open 7 days per week. Of course it's always best to call in advance to confirm hours of operation before walking in.
Retail clinics offer a wide range of services overlapping considerably with those of a traditional urgent care center. That said, they are usually staffed by a Nurse Practitioner (NP) rather than a medical doctor and generally do not have an on-site x-ray or lab services, which will prevent them from seeing patients with more advanced injuries and illnesses. Should the wait at CVS MinuteClinic get a bit much, or you need to be seen by a doctor, you can check out nearby urgent care centers including Quality Urgent Care and Wellness and Gulf Coast Immediate Care, Inc., which are 0.99 and 1.1 miles away, respectively.
As noted, retail clinics like CVS MinuteClinic are not staffed or equipped the same as an urgent care center, but they do offer much needed healthcare services like common immunizations like the flu shot, health screenings, physical exams and basic blood work. They can also treat symptoms of the cold and flu, allergies, minor cuts and burns, and simple strains and sprains. Anything more and you should head to a nearby urgent care center. One great benefit of retail clinics is that they offer on-site pharmacies like CVS Pharmacy making prescriptions very convenient.
