I'm interested to see if they will utilize this as a cheap alternative to titer testing. The article said it's like a drop of blood and $25. If antibodies are present, then one could request individual titer tests to see if skipping a vaccine is an option. Could help eliminate unnecessary booster shots. Regardless of what side you fall on vaccines, this could be a great thing. A more individualistic approach to vaccination instead of the one size fits all. I doubt policy will change,but it's an interesting article regardless if it's ever used in regards to vaccination.
