How many double vaccinated people does he check for antibodies? Would seem unnecessary. If there's inconclusive data, how does he know?
I have no idea of his covid antibody sample size but he obviously felt confident enough to have a good trend and corrélation with the patients he treats and he mentioned he had several hundred covid patients. I would guess a number of his covid and non-covid patients would need certain follow up and monitoring for various reasons especially if have other conditions.

There are different lab tests and scoring systems but he told me he sees antibody levels of 0-4 in the double vaccinated, about 5-12 with covid recovered, the higher figures correlated with the most severe cases of covid with 15 being at the extreme. Mine was above all that.

I know canton GE has periodically published reports or estimates of covid prevalence in the population using blood tests. Not sure how they got the data but I think there must be some sharing and compiling of data behind the scenes in order to get a picture of things. I also think Dr's talk and cooperate. Interesting also is that the lab report I received says that the blood sample will be preserved in a blood bank for one year. Not sure if this is normal procedure or its being used to study covid.
