We received roughly four inches of snow over the weekend, which is fairly big news for this part of Kentucky. It was the good kind of snow, too. The snow was sticky enough to make into a snowman and was accompanied by weather warm enough you wanted to stay out and play. Bubbles was thrilled with the opportunity to get out and play.
She’s been cooped up for awhile now. Actually, our house in general has been mostly on lockdown while everyone passed a stomach bug and colds back and forth. I’ve only been hit with the cold part, which is fortunate because someone has to be able to keep everyone hydrated, clothes washed, and chicken noodle soup served up.
Walgreens Healthcare Clinics
I’ve always been thankful for Walgreens’ Healthcare Clinic Louisville locations, but even more so during the past couple of weeks. Our local Walgreens is about a mile away – a quick drive, even on the day we had an ice storm and I couldn’t go more than 35 MPH on the way there. Having one so handy has been a way for me to save time and keep costs low while getting everyone well again.
Bubbles was showing signs of a cold so I called our pediatrician to make an appointment for the next day, only to be told you can’t schedule “sick” appointments and need to call the day of. (Is that normal? I had never heard of such a thing before.) It irritated me a little, because after we moved we are even further from their office, and I like to try and schedule our trips in that direction around school traffic, errands, the weather, etc.
The next day, Bubbles was sick to her stomach, which surprised and worried me. Of course, the weather was in the single digits and the thought of trying to bundle up my poor baby and drive all the way to the pediatrician in the freezing cold didn’t sound like a good plan. Then I remembered that the Walgreens’ Healthcare Clinic Louisville locations offered cold, cough, and flu treatment for anyone over the age of 18 months and they happily take walk-ins 7 days a week!
Even though I knew I could just drop in, I always pop by the #HealthcareClinic website before I head out. You can look up all the locations with an attached clinic, and even check the wait times right online. I love that Walgreens values my time as a customer and a Mom and makes things as easy for me as possible.
Fortunately, I didn’t end up needing to take Bubbles in to see one of the Healthcare Professionals. I did, however, need to make a run in to Walgreens pick up some additional toddler pain reliever. When I did I found out that with purchase of my usual brand, I would get 5,000 Walgreens Balance Rewards Points. I went ahead and picked up two and scored 10,000 points to use later.
Reasons Why This Multitasking Mom Uses the Walgreens Healthcare Clinic
When I’m trying to accomplish thirty things at once – like I know we all do on a daily basis – utilizing the Healthcare Clinic inside of a neighborhood Walgreens just makes sense. Not only do I save time by getting checked out, then filling my script while I wait, I can also pick up our milk and tissues, too. And because the clinics accept most insurance plans, I’m going to save money, too.
