COVID-19 Post-vaccination Antibody Blood Test - Clinic price £110
In recent weeks, a new test has become available that enables the testing of antibodies following a COVID-19 vaccination for patients with no history of infection. This test is a quantitative test which means that it not only gives the patient a positive or negative antibody result, but also tells the patient the level of antibodies they have if they get a positive result. This test looks for detectable Receptor Binding Domain (RDB) Spike antigens following vaccination.
When should you test after vaccination?
The recommended time to test is 28 days after your second dose of the vaccination.
The UK government has delayed the roll-out of the second vaccine dose until 12 weeks after the first. As yet, we don’t know what protection the first dose offers, however we understand that patients may be keen to test their antibody levels at this stage to check. The recommendation from the testing laboratory is not to test less than 14 day following the first dose of vaccination. We are happy to carry out these tests at this stage, but there is a chance that antibody levels will not be detected.
