Vitalant exists to make a difference in people’s lives by bringing together the best people, inspiring individuals to donate blood, producing a safe and ample blood supply, advancing cutting-edge research and embracing continuous quality improvement. Vitalant is collecting plasma from people who have recovered from COVID-19. Called “convalescent plasma,” it contains antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which can be given to patients currently fighting COVID-19. Together, we can save lives.

To be eligible, you must have:
  • A prior laboratory diagnosis of COVID-19, either by a positive swab test OR a positive test for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies requested by your health care provider
  • Complete resolution of symptoms for at least 28 days
  • All other donor eligibility for an automated plasma donation

Blood donors are NOT tested for coronavirus. Do not donate blood if you are sick.

In this episode, Wendy chats with Brittany McLemore, Marketing & Communications Specialist, about the increased need for plasma from Covid-19 survivors, as well as regular blood donations. The pandemic has increased the need for both blood and plasma for emergency procedures as well as elective surgeries that were postponed during phase one of the pandemic.
