Find The Cure For The Common Wait At MinuteClinic! @MinuteClinic #Ad




    Let’s face it, most of us are running around from place to place trying to get everything accomplished throughout the day.  In our home, we are always juggling a number of different responsibilities so when one of us gets sick, it definitely throws a monkey wrench into the program.  

    These days, we want to be seen by a doctor right away so we really appreciate the convenience of being able access health care effortlessly.  MinuteClinic now offers the cure for the common wait!


    The walk-in medical clinics at more than 1,100 CVS Pharmacy stores in your state — and 32 others and the District of Columbia — have a new digital tool to curb waits and make health care more accessible and convenient.

    At, you now have the option to observe wait times and get in line ahead of time from the convenience of your computer or smartphone…all before arriving at the clinic.  As you can see from the photo above, the waiting room this time as I made an appointment for my wellness visit was my very own living room.

    The fact that I didn’t even have to arrange childcare for my son while I made my  appointment and that I won’t have to wait for hours to be seen once I arrive are tremendously helpful.  

    CVS MinuteClinic now offers the feature to “Hold Your Place in Line.”  The way it works is that you can log in at CVS dot com or use the CVS app on your phone to schedule your appointment.

Here is how CVS Digital Tool works:

  • Use the clinic locator to select the clinic that is closest to your home or that you would like to visit.
  • Check out the wait times at the clinics in your area to choose the location that is most convenient for you time-wise.
  • Utilize the “Hold My Place” in Line button to initiate the online pre-registration.
  • Once you have added your personal details for the pre-registration, you’ll receive a confirmation email or text message outlining your unique pre-registration code.
  • Arrive at your chosen clinic a few minutes in advance in order to be seen and sign in at the kiosk using the unique pre-registration code you received.
  • Once signed, you’ll be added to line to be seen.


    Thanks to MinuteClinic, now you can wait just about anywhere.  It’s the cure for the common wait!

Let’s Discuss:  How would your family benefit from being able to hold your place in line at the doctor’s office?

  1. This is awesome! I’ve never heard of this before. Such a cool concept for busy people, especially mommas.

  2. I love this feature, and love how easy it is to use. It’s smart that there are places like CVS offering easy options for people on the go.

  3. I’m hoping these clinics take the load off of ER’s. They are so overwhelmed with urgent care patients! Love the idea of these Minute Clinics.

  4. I’ve used the Minute Clinic. When you have three kids and busy schedules this service is totally appreciated. I appreciate the login option too. I no longer live near a CVS, so it’s been a while since I’ve used this useful service.

  5. We dont have Minute Clinics here, but this is great that this is being offered for you and people who are on the move.

  6. This is great to know! We have a CVS right up the road. I’ve tried to use it before but there was a long wait. I’m sure I’ll use this new feature at some point!

  7. Never heard of this before, it sure seems interesting to be able to get in and out quicker to be seen.

  8. What an amazing service!! With three kids I hate dragging kids into the doctor’s office, it never fails we end up waiting for ever to get in when someone is sick.

  9. This is pretty awesome! We don’t have minute clinics here or CVS but I think this idea is brilliant! Would use it if I could for sure!

  10. I never herd about MinuteClinic. What a nice concept.

  11. That is such an awesome idea! who wants to sit in a waiting room for hours on end? Not me!

  12. Not being from America I thought it was hilarious that something called the MinuteClinic took three hours to see us… especially as there were only four people ahead of us. This is much better idea to waiting around.

  13. I’ve never used these before but I love the problem that the solve. It’s such a great way to cut out the wait.

  14. I have seen those MinuteClinics around at the CVS Pharmacies that are closest to my house and it makes me wish we had a CVS in our hometown. It would be so convenient to be able to keep our place and not have to actually stand in the line.

  15. I love the Minute Clinic. We have been there many times. The most recent visit was for our sports physicals for school. In and out fast!

  16. This is my first time to heard it but it sounds really great! I would also like to spread this information.

  17. Elizabeth O says

    I think it’s a terrific idea to offer patients the option to keep tabs on wait time. I’ve seen a few of them around but have never used one.

  18. I haven’t seen these yet, they sound amazing. What a great option to have, thanks for sharing!

  19. I love that they do this as you never know when you could find yourself in a position of needing a place like this. Especially when you have kids.

  20. I haven’t heard of it until now, but there are so many things to love! Making your spot in line is my favorite.

  21. I haven’t seen this in our area yet, but I’ll be sure to keep an eye out. It’s much better than waiting forever for care!

  22. Megan McCoig says

    This is a great concept for busy time or those who have better things to do than be put on a long list. Never heard of this before either!

  23. I have a CVS very close to my house and that is so convenient to me and my family. Although I have never used their MinuteClinic option, I can see that it is super convenient.
