AFC Urgent Care Arlington provides COVID-19 Antibody Testing for patients to determine if their body is currently responding to a COVID-19 infection. Antibody tests can help patients determine if they have a limited immunity to COVID-19, if their body is fighting off infection though there are no symptoms, and if there is a greater-than-expected risk of COVID-19 cases within a community.
It is important to understand that patients MUST have care in order to get COVID-19 testing at our clinic. Please reach out to our provider team if you have any questions.
AFC Urgent Care Arlington is working hard to provide as much access to testing and urgent care for our patient communities. Telemedicine urgent care and standard COVID-19 testing are just a few ways in which we are helping our city combat this troubling pandemic.
Antibody testing is the process of analyzing a patient’s blood to determine if present antibodies are fighting off an illness regardless of their symptoms. As the CDC explains, an antibody or “serology test" can detect infections in patients that have no symptoms. Asymptomatic patients can be carriers of COVID-19, which means that an antibody test is the most accurate way to determine if they have COVID-19.
Many public health organizations are using antibody tests to determine the full scope of COVID-19 infections among both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients. National research efforts rely on antibody tests to find new ways to protect the public against the virus. At the individual level, patients can visit an urgent care center, just like AFC Urgent Care Arlington, to get test results in a day.
AFC Arlington stresses the importance of calling ahead in order to qualify for antibody testing. If you believe you could have been exposed to the virus, please contact us to schedule an appointment for COVID-19 antibody testing. Other important information to consider before calling includes:

Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
