Hemotherapy Heroes: Donating COVID-19 Plasma
You may be able to help patients currently fighting COVID-19
If you have had COVID-19 and fully recovered, you may be able to help save the lives of other patients by donating your plasma. Please fill out the secure form below (scroll down) to start the process.
How can your plasma help?
Because you have already been infected and recovered, your plasma (sometimes called "convalescent plasma") now contains COVID-19 antibodies.
These antibodies helped your immune system to defeat the virus when you were sick, which means that your plasma may be able to help others who are now infected with the disease.
Who is eligible to donate plasma?
If you have had COVID-19, you may be able to help by donating plasma. To qualify, you must meet the following requirements:
- You must be eligible to donate blood.
- You must have a prior COVID-19 diagnosis documented by a laboratory test.
- You must be fully recovered for at least 28 days, or have no symptoms for at least 14 days and have a negative lab test for active COVID-19.
If you meet the requirements to donate convalescent COVID-19 plasma, please fill out the plasma donation form below. Pleaase note that, as part of filling out the form, you will need to authorize Baystate Health to access your medical records.
Once you have completed the plasma donation form below, our team from the Blood Donor Program will contact you.
