LAS VEGAS (AP) — A pharmacy and medical clinic opening inside Las Vegas' main airport will offer travel vaccines, vacation-sized prescriptions and treatment for Sin City hangovers.

The McCarran Medical Clinic and Pharmacy at McCarran International Airport has already opened its doors to urgent care patients, but will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday and open its pharmacy on Sunday.

The clinic will also offer snacks, magazines and toiletries sized for Transportation Security Administration checkpoints.

Owners say the clinic will serve more than 15,000 airport employees as well as travelers who may have trouble finding medical services away from home.

A similar business operated at the airport but went defunct in 2011.

McCarran is the ninth-busiest airport in the country.
