Where can I get an antibody test?
UK high street pharmacies and private healthcare providers are currently offering COVID-19 antibody testing for members of the public.
However, these home kits are not being recommended by medical professionals and experts.
The Government says: “The sample collection kits have not yet been validated for home use and we can’t be sure that people collecting samples at home currently have sufficient support to collect samples in a way that the laboratory can process to give reliable results and therefore should only be used by a fully trained healthcare professional.
“It’s very important for people at home to be able to understand the reliability of the result and what it means for them.
“The science regarding immunity from COVID-19 is still emerging and the implications of a positive antibody result are as yet unknown.. A positive result may not mean a person is immune or if they have antibodies now, or how long this will last.”
