ANTIBODIES! Science is wonderful!

I donated blood on 3/4 after my first Moderna vaccine on 2/8 and yippee! ANTIBODIES!

Sorry the images are so large - I tried to make them smaller.

1. Nice.

Does Red Cross now do covid antibody tests on everyone?

2. I'd want that pint if I were in hospital and unvaccinated!

...and the right blood type of course.

13. I'm AB+ so they are always calling me to donate.

I try to do it as much as they allow.

3. Interesting details in the report.

They can tell you have had the vaccine, and have not had the disease.

4. Yeah. Those who have the nucleocapsid antibodies can give convalescent plasma.

Vaccinated folks it doesnít quite work, from what I read.

5. Now the advice is to skip the plasma and use monoclonal antibodies.

Much stronger and safer.

7. I got the Pfizer vaccine on 2/26, donated on 3/2

and I signed up for the anti-body testing.

I got a note last Friday that I showed none.
The note said that is not unusual, but I expected something.

8. Might be too soon.

It takes a while for antibodies to develop. Test a week after your second dose, you should have antibodies by then.

9. That is what I was thinking. 2nd dose is 3/19. Next donation is 3/30.

that may even be too soon

10. Ten days after the second dose of Pfizer should be full immunity.

So presumably should be a lot of antibodies by that time.

11. Too soon. Look at the note in the tweet -

1-3 weeks for a reactive result post-vaccine. Yours was only 4 days later.

14. I'll be getting a quantitative anti-body test

next week, so a numerical value, though they donít know yet what it means in context. Want some baseline though since I have cancer and hope to track my anti-bodies for when it has more meaning. Wish I had asked for one before my 1st dose so to compare. Thatís what theyíre doing at UCSF for volunteers with my cancer and hopefully soon will know more. I had a reaction to my 2nd one though, fever and fatigue for a few days and was so happy. I have an immune system!
