Blood donations are always in need, especially during the ongoing pandemic when the blood supply is critically low. Blood centers across the nation, including Vitalant here in El Paso, TX, and Las Cruces, NM, are taking preventative measures amidst the novel coronavirus. Healthy individuals are encouraged to donate blood so that hospitals have enough blood supplies for trauma and cancer patients.

Donate blood this weekend, and ask about how your plasma might help patients battling COVID-19.

If you had and got over COVID-19, your plasma may qualify if you have fully recovered from COVID-19 and have been symptom-free for at least 28 days. 

If you had a positive COVID test or have an actual positive Vitalant COVID-19 supplemental antibody test, your plasma may be able to help COVID patients. To find out more, visit Vitalant.org.
