Donate Convalescent Plasma at the American Red Cross

The American Red Cross is seeking people who are fully recovered from COVID-19 to donate plasma to help current coronavirus patients. People who have fully recovered from COVID-19 have antibodies in their plasma that can attack the virus. This convalescent plasma is being evaluated as treatment for patients with serious or immediately life-threatening COVID-19 infections, or those judged by a healthcare provider to be at high risk of progression to severe or life-threatening disease.

You may qualify to donate plasma for coronavirus patients if you meet these requirements:

  • You are at least 17 years old and weigh 110 pounds. Additional weight requirements apply for donors age 18 or younger
  • You are in good health. You generally feel well, even if you're being treated for a chronic condition (view blood donation FAQs here)
  • You have a prior, verified diagnosis of COVID-19, but are now symptom-free and fully recovered from COVID-19

To donate convalescent plasma:

  1. Express interest below to record this opportunity in your Volunteer New York! profile
  2. Review the above requirements to ensure you qualify to donate convalescent plasma
  3. MANDATORY: Complete this donor request form. Those who do not complete this form will not be considered
