    They just suck out our blood at the station, and send off the vials to the standard lab with the right boxes checked on the form. It’s the same commercial lab my regular doc uses, so I’m guessing anyone can order the tests.

    We can get titers drawn on our dogs as well.

    Yes, these tests are common for dogs but did not know this could be done for humans also.

    After I did the hep B series of vaccinations my doctor had one done to see if they had worked.

    This was a good thread for making discoveries about vaccines and titering. Chuckling as the autocorrect keeps wanting to change titering to tittering. I am assuming that I am using it correctly.
