COVID-19 Antibody Testing

COVID-19 Antibody Testing

Coronavirus Antibody Testing

AFC Urgent Care is offers two types of antibody testing. One which determines an immune response due to the COVID-19 vaccine and the other determines an immune response due to a prior COVID-19 infection. The results are available within 24-48 hours.  

What hours are you testing?

We are offering antibody testing seven days a week, on a walk-in basis, no appointments are necessary.

Who can be tested?

Only patients who are asymptomatic (not exhibiting any sign or symptoms of active coronavirus infection) for at least 14 days can be tested.   

What is the difference between the antibody and PCR COVID-19 test?

The antibody test is a blood draw which tests for an immune response from the COVID-19 vaccine or a past infection and is very different from a COVD-19 diagnostic test, which is done with a nasal swab, and is checking for active presence of the COVID-19 virus itself.

When will my results be available?

You will be contacted by a Medical Assistant in 24-48 hours with your results.

What is the cost of the test?

The cost of the test is $145 which is due at the time of service. We are no longer able to accept insurance for this service.

What laboratory are you working with to perform the testing?

This antibody test is being offered through Quest Laboratories, a leader in infectious disease testing services. Quest is using the Abbott Architect Kit. To learn more about the test please visit:HERE

Is this test FDA approved?

This test is not FDA approved but has been approved for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the FDA.

What you should know about your results:

WHETHER YOUR RESULT IS NEGATIVE OR POSITIVE, PLEASE CONTINUE TO FOLLOW ALL STATE AND FEDERAL REGULATIONS REGARDING HEALTH AND SAFETY.

A positive test means:

1)  It is likely that you have developed an immune response due to the COVID-19 vaccine or prior COVID-19 infection.   

2)  You now have some protection against COVID-19 but no formal announcement has been issued yet by the CDC.

A negative test means:

1) You have not had enough of an exposure to COVID-19 to ellicit an immune response.

2) You still could have been exposed to COVID-19 but tested too early and your body hasn’t had the time to produce antibodies.

The CDC and US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have not yet issued a formal statement regarding the confirmation of the precise protection that these antibodies grant us. Please refer to the CDC’s website for more information as decisions will be made in the future regarding the interpretation and usage of these test results.

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • Why does AFC provide two different COVID tests?

    We offer a rapid test because they provide highly reliable results on the spot; however, they do produce more false negatives than the RT-PCR COVID-19 Test. Doing both tests is our way of ensuring that you get the most accurate results possible without having to put your life on hold.

  • How long does it take to get a COVID test?

    We're able to get many patients in and out in a matter of minutes, but the length of time you'll spend in our clinic will depend on wait times that day.

  • How much does it cost to get a COVID test?

    That will ultimately depend on your insurance coverage. Presently, many people with insurance are able to get tested at no charge. If you’re uninsured, AFC’s cash pay prices are highly competitive – contact your local clinic for the details.
