    In order to support efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, MinuteClinic inside select CVS Pharmacy and Target stores is taking the following temporary actions:

    • MinuteClinic inside select CVS Pharmacy and Target stores is not currently accepting walk-in patients. Members must make an appointment online at CVS.com/minuteclinic or in the CVS Pharmacy app.
    • Patients making an appointment will be pre-screened outside of the clinic to determine if it is the right site of care for their symptoms. If the pre-screen identifies the patient to be at risk for COVID-19 they will receive guidance on how to access care in a different health care setting.

    In addition, starting at the end of May, MinuteClinic is offering COVID-19 testing exclusively at select CVS locations. The test is available by appointment only. Affinity members must visit the CVS or MinuteClinic website to register in advance and make their appointment. Patients will arrive at the drive-through window and remain in their car. Testing is NOT offered inside a MinuteClinic or CVS store. Walk up testing will not be allowed.

    For routine health issues, MinuteClinic providers continue to be available to support the needs of our members. They can evaluate, diagnose and treat common injuries, illnesses and skin conditions, provide vaccines and help manage chronic conditions.
