Nebraska Community Blood Bank is working as hard as ever to meet the daily healthcare needs of our communities in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. We have received many inquiries from family, friends, and patient advocates wondering how they can secure COVID-19 convalescent plasma (CP) for their loved ones who are suffering.
Beginning May 4, we will build a public supply of CP. There is not an option to make a directed donation (making a donation for a specific patient). However, if you want to help make CP available for patients in need, please follow these steps.
Talk with the patient's health care provider to make sure they have taken these necessary steps in order to secure CP. Refer them to our information for health care providers page for more information.
Encourage anyone you know who tested positive for COVID-19 AND have had no symptoms for at least 14 days to visit ncbb.org/cpdonor to register to donate.
