Thank you for your interest in helping patients! The American Red Cross has updated its collection of lifesaving blood products to accommodate the requirements of all patients, including those fighting COVID-19, throughout the pandemic. The Red Cross and its industry partners have been able to create a adequate supply of convalescent plasma to satisfy the projected needs of COVID-19 patients because to the generosity of tens of thousands of convalescent plasma donors and the drop in hospital demand.
As a result, the Red Cross no longer accepts convalescent plasma contributions and no longer converts plasma from routine blood donations that test positive for high levels of antibodies into convalescent plasma We will, however, continue to provide this potentially life-saving medicine to hospitals as needed.
We urge all those interested in helping to save lives to Please consider donating blood or platelets. Your contributions will benefit patients undergoing cancer treatment, organ transplants, and other injuries or illnesses.
Today, look for a blood or platelet donation opportunity near you >>
