Dispensing wellness on-the-go

We've all been there - you're at work or traveling and have a headache (from the previous day's happy hour) and no aspirin on hand. Or you get a spontaneous booboo and don't have bandaids in your bag or an easy way to get some.

CVS is experimenting with bringing the pharmacy to consumers via vending machines featuring basic OTC items. The machines will be at locations like airports, public transportation stations, corporate parks and more, and have an interactive screen as well as scanner so you can still use your rewards bucks. The pharmacy chain is starting with select installations in New England, but hopefully this type of consumer convenience innovation becomes more common place.
