Both locations are offering the COVID-19 antibody test. No appointment needed.
This test may indicate that you may have had prior exposure to COVID-19.
ExpressDocs takes one tube of blood and sends it off to the lab and within 2-4 days we will have results to share with you. It is important to understand a negative result may occur if you are tested early in your illness and your body hasn’t had time to produce antibodies to infection.
It can take weeks to develop viral antibodies – and even then they may be too low to detect. Or the test may pick up antibodies from other coronaviruses. In fact, we don’t know how long these antibodies last, or whether or not it even means you’re immune.
In any case, we will consider the test results together with all other aspects of your medical history (such as symptoms, possible exposures, and geographical location of places you have recently traveled) in deciding how to care for you.
NOTE: This test has been authorized by the FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for use by authorized laboratories.
