Hoag Hospital urgently seeks plasma donors

Hoag Hospital is putting out an urgent request for plasma donors. As the number of patients with COVID-19 continues to climb in Orange County, the need for convalescent plasma also increases and the amount left available is very limited.

Hoag is urging individuals that have recovered from a COVID-19 infection to donate plasma. The process is easy and relatively quick. For some patients, plasma may be one of the very few treatment options available that can make a difference.

Donors need to meet the following criteria:

–You have had a positive test for COVID-19.

–You can obtain a copy of your positive test result.

–You are fully recovered from your COVID-19 infection.

–You have been symptom free for a minimum of 14 days.

–You are otherwise in good health.
