UPDATE 4/20: OMNI Healthcare begins new COVID-19 immunity testing at its Melbourne COVID-19 drive-through testing facility.
The new Covid-19 test is a serological enzyme linked immunosorbent assay that checks for the presence of antibodies against the virus. A positive result indicates that a person has been previously infected and under most circumstances is immune to re-infection. It can be performed on blood obtained from a finger stick. Test results are available with minutes.
OMNI’s drive-through testing center is located at 1344 S. Apollo Blvd in Melbourne. Unlike the testing for the Cornavirus (using a test performed by RT-PCR from a nasopharyngeal swab or sputum) rolled out earlier last week, the new immunity tests indicate who has been previously infected and has antibodies to fight the coronavirus infection. Only patients previously tested for the virus will be eligible for the finger test. Patients will be given the option of being tested for the virus and the antibody if they meet eligibility criteria.
Patients interested in being tested can make appointments by calling (321) 802-5515 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Our staff is working tirelessly seven days a week to answer every call, reply to all emails and return calls left in voicemail. We appreciate your patience.
The Melbourne test collecting facility operates daily from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Testing will be billed to third party payers. Patients without insurance will be charged $100 for immunity testing. Once someone is determined to be immune and determined to be free of the COVID-19 virus, the current consensus is that they are no longer infectious, are immune from re-infection, and can stop social distancing.
At OMNI Healthcare, we are working tirelessly to provide our community COVID-19 testing for those in need.
We continue to work closely with labs, suppliers and all others involved in servicing this test facility site in Melbourne. We appreciate your patience and support in our efforts to keep you and your family safe.
