LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - UMC Health System Lubbock joins a community effort by South Texas Blood & Tissue Center to encourage people who have recovered from COVID-19 to donate convalescent plasma and provide hope in the battle against the illness.
The average convalescent plasma donation provides enough for three doses, and a donor can give every four days. The donation process takes between 60-90 minutes.
To encourage Texans who have recovered from COVID-19 to donate convalescent plasma, supporters of convalescent plasma are providing each donor a $50 Visa gift card, while supplies last.
