Immunization Blood Test
From schools to workplaces, many organizations require proof of immunization these days.
Oftentimes people know they’ve been immunized but cannot track down the paperwork to prove it. If you can't remember if you've been vaccinated or your medical records are unavailable, there are ways to confirm your vaccination status.
Test Smartly Labs can run an immunization blood test for you so you can either:
- Prove you’ve been immunized
- Avoid getting immunized multiple times for the same disease
About Immunization Blood Tests
Also known as a “blood titer,” this form of immunization blood testing can determine if you’ve already built an immunity to a disease, either through previous vaccination or having already had the disease. Positive titers mean you’re immune to a disease.
What Do Titer Tests Check For?
Titer tests check to see if you have certain antibodies in the bloodstream. It involves drawing blood from a patient and having it tested in a lab to check for the presence of bacteria or disease. One titer test can check for a variety of different diseases including:
- Hepatitis A, B, or C
Why is an Immunization Blood Test Important?
Immunization blood testing can help you avoid unnecessary vaccines and can save you time and money from having to go get a booster shot. It's important to remember that immunity is not permanent, so it's smart to keep medical records in a safe place and know your immunization status.
