Schedule Antibody Test

The COVID-19 Antibody Test checks your blood to see if you have COVID-19 antibodies in your system. The antibody test is not a diagnostic tool and cannot be used to determine if you are currently sick. Instead, this test looks for antibodies that would have been used to fight the novel coronavirus. COVID-19 antibody testing provides more information about the virus and where it has spread, enabling public health experts to make better decisions on how to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

The test involves a finger prick to draw blood. The blood sample is processed on-site and results are available within 15 minutes.

There is a $49 cost for this test. You will be given a receipt you can submit to your health insurance.
