CVS Caremark to offer free Flue Shots for unemployed – Minute Clinics and Vouchers

If you get your shot at a Minute Clinic, add it to your PHR, HealthVault or Google Health. A few weeks ago I had a little time and spoke to a physician’s assistant at one of the Clinics in Orange County. We talked about the PHRs and she was right up to date on how to guide a patient into the process, impressive! BD
