As COVID-19 cases continue to increase, the need for convalescent plasma is on the rise.
LifeSouth blood bank is partnering with medical centers in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama to find plasma from blood donors who have recovered from the virus to help critically ill patients fighting the virus.
Healthy blood donors who may have been exposed or recovered from COVID-19 are asked to donate. As part of the normal blood donations process, a test will be performed on the donor’s blood to determine if antibodies are present in the plasma.
Potential donors should visit www.lifesouth.org or call 888-795-2707 to schedule an appointment.
