Unless you’ve had a Covid-19 test while you were positive for the Coronavirus, the chances are that you don’t know if it was the virus that you were sick with when you felt under the weather. Covid-19 affects everyone differently, so it’s plausible that you could have had the virus and never known about it. However, Covid-19 has been shown to still affect someone’s health months after infections, so, to ensure good health for the foreseeable future, or at least know what may be causing your continued health issues, you can come down to Polmed Primary Care & Walk-in Center for Covid antibody testing in Clearwater.
The Covid antibody test will tell you if the Coronavirus has previously infected you. Antibodies are also present in vaccinated people, and both sets of antibodies will show your body’s preparedness in fighting off future infections. You could even be combating the lingering effects of Covid-19.
We test for Covid antibodies through your blood. The blood draws are quick and simple, and you will know your antibody results within a few days. For some, present antibodies are a reassurance. For those with past infections, it enables them to know that they have fought off Covid-19 before. For those with vaccinations, it reassures them that the vaccinations are working the way that they should.
Is There a Chance for a False Negative or a False Positive?
When dealing with blood and lab work, there’s always a minimal chance of false positives or false negatives. If you feel that your test results are faulty, you can get retested for Covid antibodies in a few weeks.
While antibodies shouldn’t be used to determine a person’s level of personal protection against Covid-19, we at Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic can offer reassurance through Covid antibody testing in Clearwater. Call us at (727) 339-2054 to schedule an appointment!
