What is convalescent plasma donation ?
COVID-19 convalescent plasma is a type of blood donation collected from individuals who have recovered from COVID-19. The convalescent plasma contains antibodies that might help patients actively fighting the virus.
Individuals who have fully recovered from a verified COVID-19 diagnosis can sign up to donate by completing the EFS – Donor Request form.
How is it done ?
During a plasma donation, blood is drawn from an arm and sent through a high-tech apheresis machine that collects your plasma and then safely returns your red cells back to you. Because of this process, donating plasma takes longer than a regular whole blood donation. To help meet the growing need for this product to treat COVID-19 patients, eligible individuals can donate their convalescent plasma with the EFS every 2 weeks for up to 24 times a year.
