News You Can Use: CVS closes 90 MinuteClinics til next flu season

In what may be another sign of the (recession) times, CVS has announced it will close 90 of the retail MinuteClinics located in its stores until next flu season, citing an effort to align clinic open hours with consumer demand.

Is this a cost-cutting move in response to the recession, a sign of consumers foregoing care due to cost or a larger rejection of the retail clinic model? Comment and let me know what you think.
