Antibody testing

The government has launched a new national antibody testing programme today, through the UK Health Security Agency, to strengthen our understanding of COVID-19 as we return to normal life.

  • Britain's historic vaccination programme continues to provide a wall of defence and has prevented over 100,000 deaths in England alone, allowing us to cautiously return to normal life.
  • That is why the government and the NHS have launched new opt-in antibody testing when booking a PCR test – to monitor vital data tracking the ongoing impact of our world leading vaccination programme on the immune response to different variants of Covid-19 – ensuring that we are able to prevent infections. 
  • This innovative programme will further improve our understanding of the effectiveness of our vaccines and help target treatments for Covid-19 in future.
