Long Island City Antibody Testing Site Revealed

The site of antibody testing facility at 34-09 Queens Blvd opens next week (Google Maps)

May 8, 2020 By Allie Griffin

The location of the Long Island City antibody testing site announced yesterday has been revealed.

The borough’s free antibody testing facility will be located at 34-09 Queens Blvd., according to Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer.

The facility is one of five — one in each borough — that will test 1,000 people per day for the coronavirus antibodies free of charge. Each facility opens next week.

The first five facilities will test 70,000 people in total over the course of two weeks.

The City will then announce five new locations to test another 70,000 people for a total of 140,000 New Yorkers altogether.

The antibody tests are available through appointment only and priority will be given to residents in the immediate area of each facility.

The City is launching a hotline to schedule an appointment for antibody testing later today.

Antibody testing can show if a person has previously contracted the coronavirus, but health experts have warned that it doesn’t mean someone cannot be infected again.

I called and it’s thru OneMedical, a chain of doctor offices that’s a big business and does a lot of marketing (direct mail and all that). You have to register with them and then have a telemedicine appt with one of their docs b4 you can be scheduled. I begged off. Sounds like marketing to me; I don’t trust them with my medical or contact info and don’t want their inevitable junk mail and spam. Not a good arrangement, Mayor.

I made an appointment and didn’t see any of what you described. The company name you mentioned wasn’t affiliated with the antibody testing happening in LIC

Can’t explain the difference but fwiw I got the number from 311, where even the city rep said it’s OneMedical, which is in fact who answered. Go figure.

There are no appointments available through the end of the year and into 2021.

I just registered for the test and the address I was given was 43-11 34th Street — not 34-09 Queens Blvd.
