Antibody serology tests check for the presence or level of specific antibodies in the blood.
Antibodies are proteins that your immune system makes to fight foreign substances. These

antibodies may protect you from getting another infection or from getting severe symptoms.
A vaccine can also provide protection by triggering your immune system to make antibodies to
An antibody serology test can show that your immune system can fight off certain diseases.
