Can I get an antibody test to find out what level of protection I have from my COVID-19 vaccination?

Question: 
Can I get an antibody test to find out what level of protection I have from my COVID-19 vaccination?
 
Answer: 
Antibody tests to check level of protection after COVID-19 vaccination are not routinely available to the public.
 
Antibody tests that check antibodies made by the body after COVID-19 infection are available for a fee from some private labs. However, they do not test antibodies that are made by the body after vaccination. Read more information about antibody testing after COVID-19 infection.
 
Antibody tests are not recommended at this time. It isn't known if the presence of antibodies means you are immune to the virus and protected from getting infected again. Also, it isn't known how long your antibody response to COVID-19 lasts.
