Coronavirus Antibody Testing in Vernon, CT

Coronavirus Antibody Testing in Vernon, CT

AFC Urgent Care Vernon is now offering Coronavirus antibody testing for asymptomatic patients seven days a week. The test is performed via a blood draw and is used to detect antibodies developed from past infection with coronavirus. Testing is performed in our walk-in urgent care center and results are typically available within 4-7 business days, depending on lab capacity or any unforeseen circumstances. When you come to our center for antibody testing, please wear a mask.

***Disclaimer: Certain insurers may require a copayment.

Who is eligible for coronavirus antibody testing?

Patients who have been asymptomatic for at least 14 days can be tested for coronavirus antibodies.

What’s the difference between antibody testing and diagnostic testing?

Antibody testing is performed on asymptomatic patients via a blood draw and can only be used to detect past infection. Diagnostic testing detects the active COVID-19 virus and is performed via a nasal swab.

What do the results of my antibody test mean?

It is important to make sure you continue to follow current health and safety guidelines, including social distancing from others and wearing masks when you need to go into public areas. For the latest guidelines available in the state of Connecticut, please visit the state health department website.

Positive results indicate exposure to coronavirus and the development of antibodies. Research is still being conducted to determine whether or not that means you have an immunity to further infection with COVID-19. For the most up-to-date guidelines on how antibody testing is being used and interpreted, please visit the CDC website.

A negative result indicates that you have not been exposed to COVID-19, but it is possible that you were exposed in the recent past and have not developed an immune response as of the time of testing.

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 us for the details.
