Please consider donating plasma, which has the potential to save lives and reduce the burden of health care.

Matching donors with those who need help recovering from COVID-19 is a message of hope for a disease with no cure.

You can donate at your local blood donation center or through the American Red Cross, which is participating in this protocol. They can provide information about their locations and the donation process.

The criteria and timing for donating plasma is determined by local blood suppliers, which may include a second test by your health care provider.

The American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) offers a tool to locate blood donation sites closest to you.
