Board-certified doctors can diagnose and treat minor illnesses and conditions, including sore throats, rashes and anxiety, and even prescribe certain medications if medically necessary.2
  • MinuteClinic. Health care services at select CVS stores staffed by nurse practitioners and physician assistants; perfect for when you can’t see your doctor and need non-emergency care. MinuteClinics are available throughout the U.S.
  • Urgent care. When it’s not an emergency, consider an urgent care center for coughs, earaches, back pain and injuries.
  • Emergency care. In a life-threatening emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. Call 988 for emotional distress or for a mental health or substance use crisis.
