Vaccine Options

Atlantic General Hospital and Health System has been holding vaccine clinics, both at the hospital and in the community, since January 2021. To find an upcoming clinic, please visit marylandvax.org.

Testing Options

If you have symptoms or you have been exposed to the virus through direct contact with someone who has tested positive, you should contact your health care provider to determine whether you should be screened and how best to isolate yourself from others and for how long.

Our Atlantic ImmediCare clinic in Ocean City is open 6 days a week to provide testing services:

Atlantic ImmediCare*
at Townsend Medical Center
1001 N. Philadelphia Avenue
Ocean City
410-289-0065

*No appointment needed. Rapid tests are now available, regardless of whether you have symptoms. Standard tests are still provided for those following airline or destination travel requirements. Turnaround time varies, but it usually takes around 48 hours.

Pre-op testing for those with planned surgeries will continue to be scheduled to ensure that the test is performed within the designated timeframe. An appointment will be made by your doctor's office when your procedure is scheduled.

Protect yourself from getting sick.
COVID-19 is spread between people who are in close contact with each other and through respiratory droplets. This is very similar to how seasonal flu is spread. Taking everyday preventive actions to help stop the spread of germs will help prevent the spread of COVID-19, too.

  • wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • stay home while you are sick
  • avoid close contact with others
  • cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing
  • clean and disinfect objects and surfaces
  • wear a mask that covers mouth and nose when in public places
