CONSIDER GIVING BLOOD

Are you fully recovered from a verified COVID-19 diagnosis? If so, the plasma in your blood may contain COVID-19 antibodies that can attack the virus. This convalescent plasma is being evaluated as a possible treatment for currently ill COVID-19 patients, so your donation could help save the lives of patients battling this disease.

Donations are needed! Options for donation locally are Red Cross, Baylor Scott & White Health and Carter Bloodcare.
