Why not test for COVID-19 antibodies?

I have one question regarding COVID-19 and the vaccine: Why aren’t we testing for antibodies? From what I understand, it is an easy test to administer. Between the vaccination rate and the number of people who have recovered from coronavirus, we may just have our herd immunity. Then one could show their antibody test or their vaccine card to prove immunity.

Recent studies indicate that the antibodies last longer than originally thought. We don’t know how long the vaccine will last, since it is only a few months old. It is a good idea.
