Have you had COVID-19 and are you fully recovered? The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center can use your plasma to help save lives. People who have fully recovered from COVID-19 have antibodies in their plasma that can attack the virus. We can use your plasma and deliver it to those that are currently battling COVID-19 to help them recover.

If you were tested, diagnosed and fully recovered with COVID-19, and have been symptom-free for at least 14 days or have tested positive for antibodies to COVID-19 by an FDA approved test and been symptom free for at least 14 days, please fill out the form below to join our donor registry and see if you are eligible to donate plasma. We will keep your information and a representative from The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center may contact you in the future about your eligibility. From all of us at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, THANK YOU for helping us save lives.
