Although, the reality is nobody really knows for sure when all CVS Pharmacies are open. CVS Pharmacy is a massive organization. With nearly 10,000 retail locations, its likely that opening hours are constantly being updated – making definitive statements about when particular pharmacies are open difficult. Locations within the same city have different opening hours as do pharmacies within states. In addition, CVS Pharmacy recently purchased Target’s 1,700 in-store location pharmacy business, and the opening hours for CVS Pharmacy within Target locations may differ from those with the CVS/Hallmark brand.
The best thing to do is ignore the numerous published opening hours on the internet and contact your local Pharmacy directly. Use the CVS Pharmacy store locator via cvs.com. Ignore the secondary sources on the web.
Is CVS Pharmacy Open 24 hours?
In some cases, CVS pharmacy IS open 24 hours. Similar to the general opening hours use the CVS store locator via cvs.com to find locations which are open 24 hours a day. The store locator will provide CVS Caremark photo hours, pharmacy hours, address, phone number, and services the store offers. Bear in mind that published opening hours may not always be accurate, sometimes closures happen and the website many not be updated. The best thing to do is call ahead and see if the location is open.
Tip: If CVS Pharmacy isn’t open when you need it, check Wallgreens pharmacy hours. Wallgreens is CVS’s major competitor and may be open when CVS is not.
What are CVS Pharmacy’s Holiday Hours?
CVS Pharmacy has historically been OPEN for the following holidays.
New Years Day
Christmas Eve/Christmas Day
Martin Luther King Day
Independence Day (4th of July)
Shoppers, however should take this with a large grain of salt. Similar to non-holiday and 24 hour locations CVS Pharmacy holiday hours vary a great deal depending on the holiday and the location. The best thing to do is use the CVS store locator via cvs.com and call the pharmacy to see if they will be open on the holiday. CVS holiday hours opening information on the web simply isn’t user friendly or summarized in one place, so you’ll need to call ahead.
Use the CVS Pharmacy App
The CVS Pharmacy app is another way to find CVS store hours. Simply download the app (iOS, Android), click on the drop down menu icon and search for the CVS Pharmacy you want. It will show the hours, services and directions to the location. You can also order prescriptions 24/7, access the CVS Pharmacy rewards program (the ExtraCare card) and more importantly, get the phone number of the Pharmacy store.
While it requires some work to find out when CVS Pharmacy is open, their nearly 10,000 locations and wide variety of services means CVS is good for late night and last minute holiday shoppers. Don’t forget to call head to get updated opening information.

Sandoz, a Novartis company, is a “world leader in generic pharmaceuticals.” Generic drugs are officially described as non-brand products, which are expected to be comparable to the brand/reference drug product in its dosage form, quality, strength and intended use. However, complaints have been lodged against certain generic drugs, which have been shown to have different bioequivalencies (the rate and extent to which a drug is absorbed) than the branded drug, for example. This in turn can affect how much and how long a drug stays active in an individual’s system and thus the ultimate effect and usefulness of the drug.
Zarxio is biologically similar to a brand drug known as Neupogen, which is made by Amgen and has been used in Europe since 2009. Until recently, however, the New York Times reports that there was “no regulatory pathway” by which to bring “approximate copies of drugs” to market.
This situation changed in January when a panel of scientists unanimously voted to approve the use of Zarxio in the U.S. This was a landmark decision in part because biosimilar drugs mimic a biologic medical product, but unlike small-molecule drugs, biologics possess significant molecular complexity and are especially sensitive to manufacturing processes. Thus, they are believed to be more difficult to “mimic” than their small-molecule counterparts.
Still, Dr. Margret A. Hamber, the commissioner of the FDA, said in a statement “Biosimilars will provide access to important therapies for patients who need them.” This will enable millions of Americans to afford potentially lifesaving drugs. Beyond saving the lives of patients, Express Scripts has estimated that the approval of Zarxio will potentially save the US $5.7 billion in drug costs over the next decade and if other biosimilars are approved, over $200 billion.
Though the physicians who approved the use of Zarxio did not see any differences between this biosimilar and the brand drug, there may still be challenges in convincing physicians to use the non-brand drug. As well, biosimilars may run into the same problems as certain small-molecule drugs, which do not always mimic the effects of the brand drug. For now, life-saving therapies will likely be available to more people in the coming months, which is a positive development.
It has been some time Zarxio has come onto the US drug market. It hasn’t made a large impact as far as the world outside the medical community. What have you heard about Zarxio? Has it been important in your life?

What ways do you earn extra money?
People speculate that there are a number of different risk factors that cause cancer. These risk factors include the following:
• Genetics-Check your family history and see if there are steps that you can take to manage your susceptibility for contracting the disease.
• Your diet. What you eat is important not only to sustain energy, but what you eat can trigger cancer risk.
• Smoking habit-are you a heavy smoker or around someone who is a cigarette smoker? Are you breathing in second-hand smoke?
• Are you a heavy drinker? Do you find that you’re drinking a lot of alcohol?
• Are you next to a location that has a high number of magnetic fields?
Don’t freak out, just take some time to assess your susceptibility for contracting cancer and look at the environment around you. Create an arsenal of advice and habits that will help you manage your risk.
One of the tools you should incorporate into your kit is to drink water on a regular basis. People feel a little overwhelmed by the idea of drinking up to 8 glasses of water a day, so here are a number of ways to easily add drinking more water into your daily habits.
• Set a goal-we have all grown up with the advice to drink up to 8 glasses of water a day. What if you’re not even close and 5 those glasses of water you’re drinking are actually coffee? Don’t despair, slowly change this habit by cutting the number of cups of coffee you’re drinking on a daily basis. If you’re drinking 5 cups of coffee a day drop it to 4 and add a cup of water.
• Drink green tea (or herbal tea)- The great thing about green tea is that it seems to have cancer-fighting properties as well. Studies have shown that countries with high green tea consumption seem to have lower cancer rates.
• Get a Soda Stream-Some people really don’t like to drink plain water and prefer a little effervescence added to their water. Try to do this frugally and also be aware that you will have to get more CO2 when the cartridges run out. Just go to your local Best Buy. Bring a coupon and your old cartridge, and have the store fill it up. It will cost around $11-$14 for a refill.
• Add fruit/citrus slices/or fresh mint to a glass of water to give it a more refreshing taste.
Water flushes out the toxins in your system. If you’re not drinking water, then you’re affecting your body’s ability to cleanse itself of the toxins that find their way into your body day in and day out. Use the above strategies to increase your water intake.
In addition to regular exercise, people are also encouraged to focus on creating healthy habits that reinforce the benefits of regular exercise. Exercise affects the risk factors for different types of cancer in different ways. If you have a family history of cancer work with your doctor to determine what preventative steps you can take to manage your risk of getting cancer. Colon cancer in particular seems to be affected positively by introducing regular exercise into a daily routine.
Spend time working with a doctor and nutritionist to see what will work best for your body. Take the time getting informed about what is the best course of action for your personal health situation. Being informed will help you maintain your health and wellness for the long run.
Many people are overwhelmed by the idea of adding regular exercise to their daily routine. Fortunately, it is not as difficult as you think to add exercise into your daily life here are a few suggestions that will make it easier for you to exercise and reap the long-term benefits.
• When you’re running your daily errands, park your car as far as you can from the store that you’re going to-adding more steps to your day.
• If you live in a bike friendly town and enjoy biking, set a no driving area and ride your bike whenever running errands within that no driving area. Not only will you reap the benefits of getting fit, you will also save money on gas. Obviously, if you decide to ride and run your errands do it on a day when you’re not in a hurry.
• Exercise at home with streaming classes. There are online services that allow people to exercise from the comfort of their home. Again, consult a doctor before beginning a new fitness routine!
• If you don’t have the option for online streaming you can also rent videos from your local library and work out earlier or later in your day.
• Do a 10-minute high intensity interval training routine first thing in the morning or at night.
Cancer is a scary diagnosis to face. And there is a lot about cancer that we still don’t know and fully understand. Fortunately, we are living in a moment in time where science, research, and cumulative data are giving doctors and researchers more tools to inform and arm patients with for the long run.
