AN ANTIBODY TEST IS GOOD TO CHECK IMMUNITY LEVELS THAT CAN CONFIRM OR NOT THAT IT IS UNLIKELY YOU CAN GET THE COVID VIRUS (AGAIN) LESS SEVERELY – IT DOES NOT STOP YOU TRANSMITTING THE DISEASE

THOSE WHO HAVE HAD COVID 19 ARE NOT SAFE FROM A REPEAT ATTACK OR FROM TRANSMITTING THE DISEASE – SO MASK UP – SPACE & THOSE IN DENIAL SHOULD WASH THEIR MOUTH OUT 

Antibody test to check if you’ve had coronavirus

An antibody test is a blood test to check if you’ve had coronavirus (COVID-19) before. This test is not widely available yet.

Information:

An antibody test is different to the test to check if you have coronavirus now. You can get a test to check if you have coronavirus now on GOV.UK.

What an antibody test can tell you

An antibody test can tell you if it’s likely you’ve had coronavirus before.

But it does not work for everyone, as some people who’ve had the virus do not have antibodies.

An antibody test does not tell you:

  • if you’re immune to coronavirus
  • if you can or cannot spread the virus to other people

Important

If you’ve had coronavirus, you still need to follow the same social distancing advice as everyone else.

Getting an antibody test

Antibody tests are not widely available yet.

Free antibody tests are currently only available for certain people who work in primary care, social care or education.

These tests are to help the NHS and scientists learn more about who has already had the virus and how it has spread in the UK.

Find out more about antibody testing on GOV.UK

Information:

If you’re unable to get a free antibody test, you can pay to have a test at a private clinic if you want to.

How an antibody test works

An antibody test checks for antibodies in your blood.

Your body makes antibodies when you get an infection. They help fight the infection.

If you have coronavirus antibodies in your blood, it’s likely you’ve had the virus before.

It’s not known if having antibodies stops you getting the virus again.

Information:

Help with research into coronavirus treatments

If you’ve had coronavirus, you can donate blood plasma to help researchers find treatments.
