How Can You Help?

Local blood centers are collecting COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma from people who have recovered from the coronavirus so it can be transfused to patients with life-threatening coronavirus infection in hopes of aiding their recovery.

Call our AdventHealth coronavirus hotline at 1-877-VIRUS-HQ (877-847-8747), where one of our advocates will help you get started and direct you to your nearest blood donation center.
