Titer tests can help a person determine which vaccinations they may require and help them avoid getting vaccinations they do not need. Request A Test offers a variety of titer tests including the popular MMR (measles, mumps & Rubella), Varicella IgG (chickenpox), and Hepatitis B Surface Antibody. Titers are also available for Hepatitis A, Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis, and Polio.

Titer testing looks for the presence of various antibodies in a person's blood which provide immunity to certain diseases and bacteria. These antibodies may be present because a person has received a vaccination or in some cases, because a person has developed a natural immunity from having a disease and recovering from it. Not all immunizations will last for a person's lifetime. Additional boosters may be periodically required to maintain immunity. Unfortunately vaccinations may last longer in some people than others and there is no way to know without a blood test if a person is currently immune. For people who wish to avoid getting vaccinations they do not need, titer blood tests are a great way to determine status of immunity. It has become common practice to vaccinate young children shortly after they are born and again before they begin going to school. Some concerns have arisen about giving children unnecessary vaccinations. A titer test can help determine if a child has a natural immunity or is still protected by the vaccinations they have already received. This can help a child's parents and doctor determine whether additional vaccines are necessary. In many cases, proof of immunity will be required before entering colleges or workplaces in fields like the healthcare industry. Travelers will often find themselves requiring immunization before going to places where certain infectious diseases are prevalent. In these cases titer testing can be easier than searching for immunization records from years ago or undergoing new vaccinations. Even if someone doesn't need to check for their immunity for a specific reason, it is still a good idea to periodically check to make sure the vaccinations they have received are still providing immunity. Diseases like measles, mumps, and rubella are easily spread through the air and can cause serious health complications. Keeping up to date on immune status is a key part on preventative health care.
