Nearby medical clinic offers COVID-19 antibody testing

News

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Alabama Clinics on Hartford highway is offering COVID-19 antibody testing.

The test is for those who are healthy and haven’t been showing symptoms in the last two weeks. Unlike the other COVID-19 testing, this test is a finger prick test. If the test comes back positive, there’s a good chance you have been exposed to COVID-19 but has developed antibodies.

Chief financial officer Salman Meghani says other states are currently doing the antibody testing and wanted to bring it to Dothan.

“Basically we were seeing we arent getting a lot of actual testing for antigen so we called a couple of suppliers to see if they would help is out, support our community, and to make sure our community is also covered,” Meghani said.

Those who were tested got their results back in about ten minutes. The clinic has done over 800 tests.
