Because my former employer dd not want to cover the cost of a flu shot in a doctor's office, I was provided with a coupon for Walgreens to get the shot. A pharmacy tech administered the shot (after signing a release form) and said "have a nice day." He did not ask me to wait in the area.What's ironic about the discussion of CVS/pharmacies and whether they're suitable to treat post-shot allergies...
I get my shot from my local nationally ranked hospital (due to where I work) with some of the top healthcare professionals in the world. And I've never been asked to stay 15 minutes after my flu shot, which I get every year. Time to knock some stars off of their Yelp review...
My doctor's office doesn't have an official wait time after administering shots. But. as they usually require bloodwork (and/or a urine sample) and I have to wait for that ... I'm usually in the Doctor's Office for more than 15 minutes after the shot.
