Increasingly, a trip to the local drugstore offers another option besides buying cold remedies, hair care products or energy drinks.

Add medical care to the list.

On Wednesday, Rhode Island-based MinuteClinic opened its first two walk-in medical clinics in the Sacramento region, both inside CVS pharmacies. Patients can see a licensed nurse practitioner for treatment of minor ailments, aches and pains; get a vaccination; have their blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes checked; or complete their child’s school, camp or sports-required physicals.
