FAQs

Donors who have fully recovered from the COVID-19 have antibodies in their blood plasma to help protect against future infections. This refers to collection of plasma from fully recovered COVID-19 patients to be utilized for transfusion in seriously ill patients.
According to the FDA, “It is not currently known if convalescent plasma will be an effective treatment against COVID-19.” Since there are no known effective treatments, multiple options are under investigation by the scientific community. Some information suggests that convalescent plasma could help some coronavirus patients – especially those who are seriously ill. Since plasma transfusions are generally safe for most patients, the FDA announced an initiative to investigate this as a treatment option.
You may qualify to help if you meet specific convalescent plasma and regular blood donation eligibility requirements as below:
  • You have tested positive on a COVID-19 lab test.
