Thank you for your interest in giving COVID-19 convalescent plasma! If you’ve fully recovered from a verified COVID-19 diagnosis, the plasma in your blood may contain COVID-19 antibodies that can attack the virus. This convalescent plasma is being evaluated as a possible treatment for currently ill COVID-19 patients.
The Red Cross is testing all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies. Plasma from whole blood donations that meet the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s criteria for COVID-19 antibodies may be used as convalescent plasma for COVID-19 patients.
Blood and platelet donations are needed every day to help cancer patients, trauma patients, and others in need of lifesaving transfusions.
