Vitalant Asking People Who Recovered From COVID-19 To Donate Plasma


From KOB-TV: The Department of Health has partnered with Vitalant to help encourage people who recovered from COVID-19 to donate plasma.

"Basically, there are very limited treatment options for patients who develop COVID-19 and convalescent plasma is one of the treatment that's under investigational use right now," said Liz Rosenbaum, Vitalant Medical Director. 

Messages are plastered on electronic message boards across the state. 

Rosenbaum says blood centers around the country are collecting this plasma, and then giving it to hospitals hoping it may help patients recover faster.
