Recovered COVID-19 individuals are needed to donate convalescent plasma
Recovered from COVID-19? The Coastal Bend Blood Center is in dire need of all recovered COVID-19 individuals to donate convalescent plasma.
This plasma has the COVID-19 antibodies to help those struggling in our local hospitals with the corona virus. Individuals must have a positive COVID-19 active test and be 14-days symptom free to donate convalescent plasma. We have many loved ones hospitalized in the Coastal Bend Region waiting for this plasma.
If you have had COVID-19 or know anyone that has had this virus, please contact the Coastal Bend Blood Center at 361-855-4943 or go online to our website at coastalbendbloodcenter.org and fill out the Convalescent Plasma Donor Form.
The basic guidelines to donating convalescent plasma are:
17 years old or older
14 days symptom free
Positive COVID-19 test
110 pounds or more
As an extra incentive and thank you for literally saving lives, convalescent plasma donors will receive a $50 gift card, thanks to very generous donors in our community.
