Vitalant continues to test donations for COVID-19 antibodies and informs donors of their results. If positive, Vitalant can produce convalescent plasma from the donation to treat patients currently battling the disease to give them an extra boost to fight their illness. Other blood components from the donation can help patients undergoing surgery, receiving treatment for cancer or requiring regular transfusions for a chronic condition.
People who have received a COVID-19 vaccine are eligible to give blood, platelets or plasma if they meet all general blood donation eligibility criteria.
