Eligibility

The Passport Program is for platelet and plasma donors in Kern County. Our platelet and plasma donors are essential and their contributions help some of the most critical patients in our community, including those undergoing cancer treatments and burn victims. If you aren’t currently a platelet or plasma donor, now is a great time to start!

Platelet
Donors

Plasma is the liquid portion of the blood that helps with clotting and protects the body against foreign substances. Plasma donations help burn victims, patients with bleeding disorders, and those in need of plasma exchanges.

Platelets are small, disk-shaped cell fragments that are essential for blood clotting and help control bleeding. Platelet donations help in cancer therapy, open heart surgery, blood disorders, and organ transplants.

FAQ

How Long is the Donation Process?

Plan on being here for about 2 and a half hours for the whole entire donation process. For plasma donations, the actual donation can take up to 30 mintues to an hour. For platelets, the actual donation takes about 1 hour to an hour and a half. Donors have the option to watch movies in the donor chairs to help the time go by faster!

Have you been pregnant to term?

If a woman wants to donate trima and has had a history of pregnancy to delivery, we require them to take an HLA test, which can be done at any of our donor centers or mobile blood drives.

What is HLA?

Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA): HLA antigens are proteins that can be found on most cells within your body.
