You could still help others with a blood donation.
Thank you for your interest in donating COVID-19 convalescent plasma (CCP). Many of you have recovered from COVID-19 and chosen to help others fight the virus through dedicated convalescent plasma donation.
Since June 2020, Carter BloodCare has been testing all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies. Plasma from whole blood donations that meet the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines for convalescent plasma could be used to treat patients impacted by COVID-19.
Thankfully, community needs for convalescent plasma are being met, but other patients are in need of urgent, lifesaving transfusions.
With our blood supply at record lows, these patients need your help. As a dedicated donor, we ask that you consider donating platelets or red cells. Please let our friendly customer service representatives schedule your next blood donation to help save lives.
You can schedule your appointment three ways:
- Call 817-412-5830.
- Text 800-366-2834.
- Self-schedule online.
Frequently Asked Questions and Answers:
A: Yes. Carter BloodCare welcomes COVID-19 vaccine recipients to donate blood for other hospitalized patients who require blood transfusions of red cells or platelets. You can make an appointment by calling or texting 800-366-2834 or schedule your appointment online to give at one of our 25 donor centers.
Q: Can I reasonably assume that a positive antibody test result means I have some protection from this virus?
A: Individuals recovered from COVID-19 or who were asymptomatic with a positive antibody test result, should continue to practice caution. It is not currently known whether the presence of antibodies provides immunity to ongoing or future viral exposure. The virus may be continuously changing (mutating) over time in our community.
