covid-19 antibody monitoring

Where can I find the COVID-19 Antibody Monitoring service?

While monitoring immunity is vital in assessing the protective response to COVID, current national management strategies are effectively focused on vaccinations, public health measures, early identification of symptoms, and wider support of health systems. Feedback from the users of the COVID-19 antibody monitoring service has been extremely positive, especially about the device – however, to better align our efforts with what’s of importance to the NHS, we have decided to discontinue our COVID-19 antibody monitoring test service at this time.
