What does a positive antibody test result mean for COVID-19?
A positive antibody test result means that your child’s immune system produced antibodies against the COVID-19 virus either due to a previous infection or in response to a COVID vaccine.
What is the purpose of COVID-19 antibody or serology tests?
The purpose of COVID-19 antibody or serology tests is to determine if your child has antibodies against the virus. This information can help with clinical research and vaccine development. Learn more about testing for a previous COVID infection here.
Does an antibody test show if my child has COVID-19?
An antibody test will not show if your child has COVID-19. It is designed only to test for past infections by detecting antibodies.
At what point after infection with COVID-19 will there be enough antibodies to be detected in an antibody test?
After an infection with the COVID-19 virus, there will only be enough antibodies to be detected in an antibody test after two to three weeks. So, getting your child tested too soon will possibly lead to a negative antibody test result.
Why is antibody testing not currently recommended to assess immunity after COVID-19 vaccination?
Antibody testing is not currently recommended to assess immunity after COVID-19 vaccination because it is not authorized to measure the level of protection a vaccine gives based on a child’s immune response. An incorrect interpretation of antibody test results might make kids think that they are fully protected and might encourage them to take fewer safety precautions against the virus.

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.

The staff and the doctors were all very kind and caring. I was very worried about my child’s health. I appreciate your clinic being open on Saturdays. This saved us a trip to the ER, which can be scary for a child. Thank you again!

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.
