COVID-19 Antibody Testing

According to the CDC, COVID-19 is a novel respiratory disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. To determine if you have previously contracted COVID-19, you can undergo an antibody test. It takes some time for antibodies to develop, so it is recommended to wait approximately three weeks after exposure to COVID-19 before taking the test.

To undergo a COVID-19 antibody test, you will need to have your blood drawn for a serologic examination. The test will check if your blood contains SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, but it cannot indicate whether you currently have COVID-19. If you require a consultation with a doctor, please contact Aed Urgent Care for virtual or in-person appointments.

Aed Urgent Care provides the following services:

  • Waiting areas that are socially-distanced and sanitized
  • COVID-19 tests
  • Antibody tests
  • Rapid Swab tests
  • At-Home Testing
  • Walk-In COVID-19 vaccinations

When it comes to interpreting antibody test results, it may take 1-3 days to receive them. A negative result indicates that your blood does not contain SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, while a positive result means that your blood does have SARS-CoV-2 antibodies. It’s important to note that no test is completely accurate, and false positives or false negatives can occur.

To protect yourself and others from COVID-19, please adhere to the following measures:

  • Wear a mask and ensure it covers your nose and mouth.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Use hand sanitizer containing 60% alcohol.
  • Maintain a distance of two arm-lengths or 6 feet from individuals who do not reside with you.
  • Avoid large gatherings.
  • Consider getting a flu shot.
  • Get tested for COVID-19.
  • Get vaccinated against COVID-19.

COVID-19 Antibody Testing

Q1: What is the purpose of an antibody test for COVID-19? 

 A1: An antibody test for COVID-19 is used to determine if an individual has previously been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus by checking for the presence of antibodies in their blood.

Q2: How long should I wait before getting an antibody test after being exposed to COVID-19?

 A2: It is recommended to wait approximately three weeks after exposure to COVID-19 before undergoing an antibody test, as it takes time for antibodies to develop and be detectable in the blood.


How can I obtain the latest COVID-19 vaccine?

Receiving a COVID-19 vaccine is the most effective and safest measure to prevent severe illness. Similar to other vaccines, the COVID-19 vaccine instructs your body on building its own defense against the virus responsible for this disease. Typically, the COVID-19 vaccine consists of two doses, with the second dose administered 14 to 28 days after the initial one. It takes approximately three weeks after the final dose to develop immunity. Access to COVID-19 vaccination is subject to availability and regulations set by your state. Please reach out to us for further information on obtaining a COVID-19 vaccine.
