If you have tested positive for COVID-19 and have fully recovered, you may be able to help current patients with life-threatening COVID-19 infections by donating plasma.
As a result of your infection, your plasma now contains COVID-19 antibodies, which is one way your immune system fought the virus when you were sick. Your plasma is now known as convalescent plasma.
Local AABB (American Association of Blood Banks) accredited locations are standing by to accept convalescent plasma donations from those who are eligible.
To speak with a representative to review your eligibility and learn more about the process, please refer to the details below.
