The Charles B. Wang Community Health Center (CBWCHC) offers COVID-19 vaccines for patients ages 5 years and older. Talk to your healthcare provider about the vaccine.
CBWCHC is not a COVID-19 testing site. Currently, we do not offer COVID-19 spike antibody testing. Having spike antibodies does not mean you canít get COVID. No matter what level of spike protein you have, it does not change the fact that you still need to get the booster shot. The best way to protect yourself is to get your COVID-19 vaccine booster shot which will reduce your chances of becoming seriously ill against the latest variants.
