    I'd like the same people that answer the first poll to do this one too, to see if we can tell how much length of illness makes a difference in picking up antibodies. It would take a lot of responses.

    Can the poll be changed to private? I wasn't sure about the options and can't edit it.

    There are benefits to a non-private poll. It prevents false results from those who sign up just to skew the poll results. I have mentioned this to Cort, with regards to the other serology poll.

    OK non private is fine with me. If anyone really wants to be private they can ask someone else to post results in comments or something.

    Should I have separated 10-15 or 20 years, from more?

    have people gotten their serology results back yet (besides the 2 on this poll)? Seems there's a huge backlog at vipdx

    Hello mojoey,

    I sent in my blood on the first day that VIPdx offered the serology test. I called last Thursday and they told me it would be another two weeks for results (that will make it about 8 weeks). The woman I talked to said they have 300 tests to be validated since it is a new test.
