CVS Pharmacy has launched a MinuteClinic at its new Pentagon City location (1201 S. Hayes Street).

The store-based clinic will offer customers quick diagnostics and solutions for common ailments and injuries, as well as vaccinations and and basic check-ups for adolescents. From a company press release:

MinuteClinic nurse practitioners and physician assistants specialize in family health care and can diagnose, treat and write prescriptions for common family illnesses such as strep throat and ear, eye, sinus, bladder and bronchial infections. Minor wounds, abrasions and joint sprains are treated, and common vaccinations such as influenza, tetanus, pneumonia and Hepatitis A & B are available at most locations. Walk-in camp, sports and college physicals for adolescents are available daily. In addition, MinuteClinic administers a series of wellness services designed to help consumers identify lifestyle changes needed to improve their current and future health, including screenings and monitoring for diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

No appointments are required at MinuteClinic and most health insurance is accepted. For patients paying cash or credit, treatment prices are posted at each medical center and on www.minuteclinic.com. The cost for most treatment starts at $79.

A PR rep for the company said MinuteClinics help to make healthcare “more accessible, convenient and affordable for patients near where they live and work.”

This is the second MinuteClinic in Arlington and the 22nd in the metro D.C. area. The other Arlington-based MinuteClinic is located at the CVS at the Lyon Village Shopping Center (3133 Lee Highway).

Both Arlington clinics operate seven days a week, from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Monday through Friday; 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday; and 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday.

    Might want to sub out the picture – this is for the CVS near Kabob Palace (23rd and S. Eads).

      Considering the proximity of the pictured CVS to the CCR, there might be a market for a “clinic” at this location too.

    FYI – the photo is of the Eads Street CVS – not the Pentagon City location (which is where the Borders used to be in the same complex as Best Buy and Costco).

      Thanks for pointing out that it was where the Borders used to be. I was trying to determine where it was and it wasn’t showing up on Google Maps.

    • Good point, we’ll use the not-quite-as-pretty photo of the actual location from before it opened.

  • Ralph

    Yeah! Pentagon City! Moving forward!

    How long until an SUV flips or crashes into it?

    F Y I – Flu season has started in New York and parts of New England.

  • Crystal lite

    I have been to the Lyon Village Minute Clinic and thought it was great — easy in and out with an Rx for strep. Way easier than dealing with a primary care doctor.

    Good idea, but seems a little pricey…
