MU health system to open walk-in clinics at Hy-Vee

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — The University of Missouri's health system plans to open walk-in medical clinics at the three Hy-Vee grocery stores in Columbia.

The university says two of the clinics should open in August and the third in west Columbia by October. The clinics will be open seven days a week and known as Mizzou Quick Care.

MU Health Care officials said the clinics will treat patients with sore throats, skin rashes and other minor ailments that don't require a visit to a hospital emergency room or a doctor's office.

The clinics will also provide flu shots and physicals required by employers, schools or youth sports teams.
