Thank you to Collective Bias and Walgreens for sponsoring this post and giving me the chance to talk about Walgreens Healthcare Clinics. Not having easy access to a health clinic is one of my biggest fears when we travel. The last thing I want is to end up in the middle of a city wondering where to go for, who to trust and thinking I am going to have to pay to go to the emergency room for a cough or sore throat. Knowing that Walgreens has Healthcare Clinics available in many cities is a huge relief. I know that if I have a cough, ear ache, or who knows what I can look at Walgreens Website and locate a clinic in the area.
The Walgreens Healthcare Clinic is open 7 days a week. You do not have to worry that they are going to be closed at 5pm and you can’t find a place to go. Their website tells you the Healthcare Clinic’s hours and also tells you the current wait time. I love that you can log in and see which locations have the best wait time. You are not stuck in a waiting room not feeling good for hours as you wait for your appointment or to be seen. I don’t know about you but it stresses me out to be waiting for hours in a waiting room filled with coughing sick people that I know don’t feel good. The last thing I want to do is spend 2 hours breathing in all sorts of new germs and issues that I really don’t want in my body.
The Walgreens Healthcare Clinics are located within your local Walgreens. You don’t have to hop in your car and drive to get your prescriptions filled you can do it right there. There is nothing worse than feeling like crud finally getting into the doctor only to realize you have to drive to another spot to get your prescription filled. When really all you want to do is curl up on the couch and hope you feel better soon.
Walgreens Healthcare Clinics not only offer treatment for when you are ill, have aches and pains and minor injuries they also offer vaccines, physicals and health screenings. If you have an ongoing health condition you can work with the Walgreens Healthcare Clinic to set up ongoing monitoring and management.
