DONATE NOW:Urgent Call for Healthy Donors as Blood Supply Drops to Dangerously Low LevelsSchedule Appointment

Convalescent Plasma (CP)

Thank you for your interest in convalescent plasma donation and JOINING OUR FIGHT TO SAVE LIVES.

NYBC has been building the nation’s supply of convalescent plasma for months from those who have recovered from COVID-19 and will continue to collect and maintain a bank for hospitals to treat patients with serious or immediately life-threatening COVID-19 infections. There are two different ways to donate convalescent plasma. It can be donated like a regular whole blood donation with the plasma portion of your blood separated and available for COVID-19 patients, or it can be collected via automation (visit Types of Donations for more information). The frequency and criteria for each donation varies (visit the CP Donor FAQ to view eligibility and donation intervals). We are asking all eligible donors to come forward so we can treat as many patients as possible.
