It’s that time of the season again, as the sniffs and coughs begin to rapidly spread throughout campus.Despite how hard you try to avoid all who are infected, no doubt you will wake up soon enough with a tickle in your throat and a waterfall running from your nose. As a college student, you can’t go all the way back home to your family physician, and the university’s clinic is booked for days. So, you drive to the nearest Walgreens and walk into the MinuteClinic. Here, within an hour you’re able to check in, get evaluated and diagnosed by a healthcare professional, and walk out the door with a prescription in one hand and a copy of your medical results in the other.
