To help COVID-19 patients with weakened immune systems, the American Red Cross has resumed testing all donations for COVID-19 antibodies for a limited time. Plasma from donations with high levels of COVID-19 antibodies may be used as convalescent plasma.

 

While we work to ensure doctors have access to this treatment option for the most critically ill patients facing COVID-19, blood donations are still needed daily to help cancer patients, trauma victims and those with blood disorders. The Red Cross blood supply remains vulnerable and those interested in giving are urged to make a blood or platelet donation appointment in the days and weeks ahead.

 

In thanks, all who come to donate in March will receive a $10 e-gift card from Fanatics. They’ll also be entered to win a trip for two to the 2022 MLB® All-Star Game® in Los Angeles.
