Vote on Massachusetts retail medical clinics delayed

Boston Globe, December 13, 2007

The Massachusetts Public Health Council has delayed a vote until January 2008 on whether to allow medical clinics to operate inside retail stores in the state. CVS Corp. had asked for waivers from existing regulations so the chain could open 20 to 30 MinuteClinics in Boston-area stores in the to treat minor illnesses. Instead, state health officials decided to develop new regulations to address the concept of retail clinics.
