As of 12/18/2021, the CDC estimates the Omicron COVID strain is responsible for 73% of positive cases. COVID vaccines and getting your booster as soon as you are eligible remain the best protection against Omicron. Your AIM providers have adopted the Primary Care Triple Plan proposed by the Maryland Department of Health (MDH).
Action Steps include:
o Therapeutics: oral antivirals
We continue to stock the Moderna vaccine for primary vaccines and boosters. Appointments are available for testing at the AIM Clinic. Patients meeting the criteria will be prescribed the oral antivirals.
Please note-MDH has advised that there are limited supplies of oral antivirals. These treatments will be reserved for the particularly vulnerable and the moderately to severely immunocompromised.

COVID Testing at Luminis Health
Beginning Friday, December 31, 2021 at 9 a.m., the Maryland Department of Health, with the help of the National Guard, will open a public COVID-19 testing site in the medical tent outside of the Luminis Health Anne Arundel Medical Center south pavilion. Many thanks to Governor Hogan, the Maryland Department of Health, and the National Guard for their partnership and action.
The testing site will run 7 days per week, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., including New Year’s Day, until further notice. The site will be walk-ups only, no scheduling or appointments, no physician order required, and will consist of PCR lab tests, which take 24-48 hours for results.
