COVID-19 Spike Protein Antibody Test
(Venous Blood Test)
This blood test assesses the level of antibodies to the Covid-19 spike protein which may be present after having the vaccine and/or Covid-19 infection with results delivered within 24-36 hours.
This blood test assesses the level of antibodies to the Covid-19 spike protein which may be present after having the vaccine and/or Covid-19 infection. This test alone will not identify how the antibodies were acquired. This is a venous blood test with results delivered within 24-36 hours.
This is a quantitative test which gives you a measure of the level of the antibodies you have to the spike protein, which is the target of many vaccines including Pfizer, Astrazeneca and Moderna. Antibody levels can be tracked over time and could play a role in establishing vaccine efficacy and vaccine-induced immune response.
We recommend that you have this test no sooner than 3 weeks after your first vaccine. This test can be repeated 1 week after your final vaccine.

A Fit to Fly medical certificate is a GP medical certificate which states that you are well enough to fly. Some countries and airlines are making this mandatory as part of their new COVID-19 immigration processes. For some countries it can also be used to avoid the imposed quarantine rules upon landing. In the context of COVID-19 a GP will need to verify that you are not experiencing any of the common symptoms of COVID-19 in keeping with UK government guidance and that you have a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test result in order issue a COVID-19 Fit to Fly travel certificate on this basis.
