The rise in COVID-19 hospitalizations has also created a demand for COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma for treatment of critically ill coronavirus patients, the CBC stated. Those that register to donate plasma will receive a $25 Kroger gift card and the “Support the Fight Against COVID – Donate Convalescent Plasma” t-shirt. First time donors must have proof of a positive test and can register at www.givingglood.org or call 937-461-3220.
The blood donation requirements include: to provide a photo ID that includes their full name; past CBC donors are also asked to bring their CBC donor ID card; be at least 17 years of age or 16 years old with parental consent (the form is available at www.givingblood.org or at CBC brand and blood drive locations); weight a minimum of 110 pounds, but you may have to weigh more depending on your height; and be in good physical health.
