Two CVS pharmacy locations in the Grand Strand will now house MinuteClinics, where nurse practitioners will be available seven days a week to see sick patients, monitor chronic health issues, and give vaccinations.
The new clinics are located at 1303 38th Avenue North in Myrtle Beach and 3710 Highway 17 Bypass in Murrells Inlet. They are open during regular store hours, require no appointment, accept many health insurance plans, and will provide a report to your primary care physician. If you don't have one, they'll assist you in finding one.
It can be confusing trying to decide which type of care your condition needs when faced with the choice of emergency room, urgent care, or retail clinics, such as MinuteClinic. Here is a great article from US News and World Report that offers guidance when choosing.
