Antibody Testing

What does the COVID-19 antibody test consist of?

  • Antibodies are proteins in your blood that fight infections.
  • The COVID-19 antibody test is a blood test to find antibodies.
  • The test is taken through a finger prick or blood draw.
  • A positive test for antibodies is not necessarily an indication of immunity.

Who can get an antibody test?

You should get an antibody test if you:

  • DON'T have COVID-19 symptoms
  • HAVEN'T been sick in the last two weeks
  • HAVEN'T tested positive for COVID-19 in the last two weeks

Why should you get tested?

  • You'll know if you had COVID-19.
  • You'll help develop research for vaccines and other ways to fight the virus.

Where can I get tested?

Free antibody testing is available on a walk-in basis at the 11 acute care facilities of NYC Health + Hospitals and at the following Gotham Community Health Center sites.
