As of mid April, ​St. Mary’s Regional Blood Center is beginning the collection of COVID positive patient plasma. 

Donors must meet several criteria established by the Food and Drug Administration, the first of which is to have already received a confirmed COVID positive test result. The Regional Blood Center can only accept confirmed positive COVID donors who have had no symptoms for at least 14 days. Once established, a second test will be administered, and if negative, then the plasma can be drawn.

Interested donors are encouraged to email their name and contact information to call 303-813-5230 or email convalescentplasma@sclhealth.org to begin the pre-screening process. A screener will contact them to establish the remaining criteria.
