Convalescent Plasma Program

People Who Have Recovered from Coronavirus Can Help Save Others

Patients who have recovered from COVID-19 have immune antibodies in their blood that were built up as they fought off the virus. Studies have shown that transfusing these antibodies (known as “convalescent plasma”) into patients who are seriously ill with COVID-19 can be potentially life-saving.

That’s why the Red Cross is coordinating with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to educate and encourage those who have recovered from COVID-19 to make a convalescent plasma donation.

Donating is not difficult, but you will need to be recovered and symptom-free from the COVID-19 virus for at least 14 days (and meet some other criteria) before donating.

For patients who have recovered from COVID-19, donating blood could offer a life-saving solution in our community’s ongoing fight against Coronavirus. More information on donating, including an eligibility form, can be found on the Red Cross’ website here:
