Suncoast Blood Centers is ready to provide convalescent plasma to hospitals as an FDA approved investigational new drug for use in patients with life-threatning COVID-19 infections. You can help save a life, posing no risk to you by donating.
If you or someone you know tested positive for COVID-19 AND have fully recovered from the illness, please contact SunCoast Blood Centers to schedule a plasma donation. Your plasma now contains antibodies to fight SARS-CoV-2 and possibly save the life of someone critically ill with the virus.
TO BE ELIGIBLE YOU MUST:
Be symptom free more than 14 days
Provide written documentation of a positive
COVID-19 test result
Meet FDA donor eligibility guidelines
You must call or email for an appointment
If you think you had COVID-19...
but were not tested for the virus you may be eligible to donate convalescent plasma. SunCoast will run a serological test to determine if you had past exposure to the virus, you can donate.
THIS IS NOT A DIAGNOSTIC TEST FOR COVID-19. WE NEED RECOVERED PATIENTS ONLY.
SunCoast Blood Centers is working with the FDA and local health organizations to coordinate the collection and use of COVID-19 convalescent plasma.
For years, convalescent plasma has proven successful in treating other viral infections. We are hopeful that it will be beneficial to treat patients suffering from COVID-19.
