COVID-19 Antibody Testing Available at AFC Urgent Care Denver
AFC Urgent Care Denver provides COVID-19 Antibody Testing for patients to determine if their body is currently responding to a COVID-19 infection. Antibody tests can help patients determine if they have a limited immunity to COVID-19, if their body is fighting off infection though there are no symptoms, and if there is a greater-than-expected risk of COVID-19 cases within a community.
It is important to understand that patients MUST have a car in order to get COVID-19 testing at our clinic. Please reach out to our provider team if you have any questions.
AFC Urgent Care Denver is working hard to provide as much access to testing and urgent care for our patient communities. Telemedicine urgent care, curbside medical testing, and standard COVID-19 testing are just a few ways in which we are helping our city combat this troubling pandemic.
What is Antibody Testing? How does it work?
Antibody testing is the process of analyzing a patient’s blood to determine if present antibodies are fighting off an illness regardless of their symptoms. As the CDC explains, an antibody or “serology test” can detect infections in patients that have no symptoms. Asymptomatic patients can be carriers of COVID-19, which means that an antibody test is the most accurate way to determine if they have COVID-19.
Many public health organizations are using antibody tests to determine the full scope of COVID-19 infections among both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients. National research efforts rely on antibody tests to find new ways to protect the public against the virus. At the individual level, patients can visit an urgent care center, just like AFC Urgent Care Denver, to get test results in a day.
Immune Response Blood Test in Denver, CO
AFC Urgent Care Denver locations offer immune response blood tests in order to tell if patients have already been exposed to COVID-19. The detection of previous exposure means that a patient has some immunity to the virus, but more research is still needed by public health experts to determine the extent of immunity based on antibody response.
An immune response test from AFC Urgent Care Denver allows patients to get tested and inform your choice to go back to work or normal activities. However, patients must make an appointment beforehand in order to get COVID-19 testing. Learn more by calling your nearest AFC Urgent Care Denver COVID-19 testing facility.
