Convalescent Plasma Donations


Recovered from COVID-19? Donate plasma locally to help others.

Who can give:
If you were previously diagnosed with COVID-19 and have fully recovered, your plasma may contain antibodies which could help other critically ill COVID-19 patients. Because your immune system fought off COVID-19, you may have antibodies in you that could help others fight it off too.
Plasma containing the COVID-19 antibody could be designated as convalescent plasma and used to treat patients fighting COVID-19 at Baptist Health Hardin and other partner hospitals.
Baptist Health Hardin has partnered with the Kentucky Blood Center to offer a local plasma donation opportunity.


Criteria to donate:
  • Meet all routine blood donor criteria
  • Proof of a positive test for COVID-19 or a positive antibody test
  • Recovered from COVID-19, with NO symptoms for at least 21 days
  • Special Note: If you were a recipient of convalescent plasma, it must have been over 90 days ago


About the donation procedure:
  • Plasmapheresis procedures take about one hour including a medical history review.
