WHAT IS COVID-19 CONVALESCENT PLASMA?

Convalescent plasma is the liquid portion of your blood that is collected from recovered COVID-19 patients. COVID-19 patients develop antibodies that help fight against the virus, which can be found in their plasma.

This form of treatment is being used to help critically ill patients that are currently suffering from COVID-19.

To donate, you must meet the following requirements:

If you meet these requirements and are interested in donating convalescent plasma, please call us at 661-323-4222.
