¿Superaste el Covid-19 y estás interesado(a) en donar plasma para ayudar a pacientes de Covid-19? Has clic aquí para información en español.
Plasma collected from recently recovered COVID-19 patients can provide hope to those who are currently hospitalized with COVID-19. The plasma from recovered patients is called convalescent plasma and it is being transfused to treat COVID-19.
The convalescent plasma contains antibodies that are believed to help fight the virus. This treatment has shown promise when used similarly against other infections in the past. Only someone who previously tested positive for COVID-19 or its antibodies is able to donate their plasma and help save lives this way.
Carter BloodCare is collecting this plasma for hospitals and their patients in our community. Individuals donating convalescent plasma must be qualified and enrolled in the program by a Carter BloodCare representative. Please do not show up at a blood drive or donation center without a pre-approved appointment time and location.
To be eligible to donate convalescent plasma, an individual must:
- Have had a positive test result for COVID-19 or antibody test results
- Have complete resolution of symptoms for 14 days
- Meet the regular blood donation guidelines
Did you test positive for COVID-19 and are fully recovered?
Thank you for your interest in donating convalescent plasma for currently hospitalized COVID-19 patients. This is another way you can save lives in your community. If you are approved and selected to participate in the program, you might be able to donate your plasma every 14 days. Do not make your appointment through our website, mobile app, or by walking into a donation center. Please complete this form to demonstrate your willingness to participate and you will be contacted by a Carter BloodCare representative.
