Convalescent Plasma Update – March 25, 2021
Community Blood Center of the Ozarks would like to express our deep appreciation to our COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma (CCP) donors.
These individuals, who recovered from the virus, have stepped up and donated their antibody-rich plasma since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.
Approximately 4,500 units of CCP have been transfused to hospitalized patients at 25 of our local partner hospitals. Currently, we have an ample inventory of CCP and we will stop the collection of CCP effective immediately.
While we will no longer be collecting CCP, our partner hospitals still need more than 200 donations of whole blood daily to meet their transfusion needs.
If you were a CCP donor, we encourage you to schedule an appointment at one of our fixed collection sites or at one of our many mobile drives held throughout the Ozarks.
Find out where you can donate by visiting https://www.cbco.org/donate-blood.
Thank you for giving life to your community!
