Can I Check My Platelet Levels Before Taking A COVID-19 Vaccine?
If you want to measure your platelet levels then a Full Blood Count Test is the test required to do so. The platelet count is measured along with the mean platelet volume. Platelets are vital for ensuring correct blood clotting (coagulation) and the mean platelet volume (MPV) test measures their average size and is closely related to the platelet count.
All of the parameters detailed on the test page, including platelet count, will be measured and compared against normal ranges for your age and gender, so anything out-of range will be clearly highlighted on your results report.
