Blood test for
COVID19 vaccination response
As more people have the vaccination there is more interest in being reassured as to your own individual response.
We are pleased to offer our patients a blood test which can detect whether your body has made a response to the
COVID 19 (SARS -CoV-2) vaccination.
This blood test using the ROCHE system, measures the level of spike antibodies in your blood and will give a POSITIVE or NEGATIVE result. If there is a positive result and you have not previously had the virus, then it indicates that the vaccination has been taken up by your body appropriately.
We recommend this test after 14 days or more per vaccination as the accuracy is then 99.7%.
After your second vaccination there will be a much higher reading indicating the body’s uptake to the vaccine
The test price of £120 includes an optional phone discussion with a GP on the results from the test.
• Negative: no response to vaccine and no previous Covid infection
• Positive low level: response to vaccine 1 or previous Covid infection
• Positive High level: response to vaccine 2 or previous Covid infection
As this area of clinical testing develops, more clinical detail will be made available.
