Q: Can Mosaic check for COVID-19 antibodies?
- There are a variety of COVID-19 antibody tests to choose from, and many of them have a high percentage of false positive results (show that a patient has antibodies when they really do not) and false negative results (show that a patient does not have antibodies, when they really do).
- We do not have any data on how long the COVID-19 antibodies last in a patient, and this may vary from patient to patient depending on exposure and COVID-19 variant.
- We do not have a reliable COVID-19 antibody test in the community at present that we can order or interpret with proper sensitivity and specificity.
- Regardless of the results of a COVID-19 antibody test, the clinical management in primary care will not change. If you have been exposed, the COVID-19 vaccine is still recommended since we have evidence that the vaccine will further boost a patient’s immunity to the COVID-19 virus.
