Pharmacies at US drug stores Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid have all expanded the breadth of medical services offered within their retail clinics. Walgreens has announced more frequent testings for cholesterol, blood glucose and blood pressure. CVS-owned MinuteClinic now offers Vitamin B-12 injections and Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination. Following relaxed federal regulation, Rite Aid is extending the provision of shingles and whooping cough vaccinations to a wider population group. Medical services housed within pharmacies vary across US chain stores as state regulations differ, but are an increasingly substantial revenue stream within existing retail outlets.
