In the United States, more than 10,000 urgent care centers serve more than 160 million patients every year. At Experity, we believe these clinics are a critical source of convenient, community-based care and play a significant role in the country’s response to COVID-19.
Experity has partnered with lobbying firm Sirona Strategies to give urgent care clinics a leading voice in how the United States responds to COVID-19 vaccinations. On this resource page, you will find the most recent updates to state guidelines and enrollment information. We will be updating this page with regular updates, so check back often to stay on top of recent news.

Nevada now has a COVID-19 Vaccine Planning page located here –information regarding enrollment is included in the FAQs at the bottom of the page. I did not see any state updates on vaccine prioritization phases.
This brings the total to 48 states that have dedicated enrollment pages. States that do not have enrollment pages are Illinois, Montana and West Virginia.
Experity and Sirona partnering with Biden administration: Through conversations with the CDC, HHS, and Biden administration we are thrilled to see that urgent care has been included as a recommended venue for vaccination within each state. Up until this data, this direct inclusion of urgent care was left off of the plan. The Biden administration published this plan on January 21st as the new recommended guidelines for state leaders to follow. We are also excited to note that HHS will be working with CMS to review the reimbursement rates for the COVID-19 vaccine to make sure venues are being appropriately compensated.
