Come give the gift of life and your donation will be tested to find out if you have the COVID-19 antibodies!
*The antibody test is authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and may indicate if the donor’s immune system has produced antibodies to the coronavirus, regardless of whether an individual developed symptoms. For the next few months, Red Cross blood, platelet, and plasma donations will be tested using samples obtained at the time of donation and sent to a testing laboratory, where the samples will also undergo routine screening and infectious disease testing. Should you test positive for the COVID antibodies, your plasma may be used to help a current critical COVID patient.
A positive antibody test result does not confirm infection or immunity.
American Red Cross is practicing all COVID protocols, prescreening donor temperatures prior to entry to the blood drive, providing masks, and hand sanitizer, and extended cleaning between each donor. The safety and confidence of all donors, volunteers, and our staff is very important.
Masks must be worn while in the blood drive.
