Donate Plasma

If had Covid and are now recovered, you can donate plasma to help others fight the disease. Specifically, you must have:

  1. tested positive for the disease (proof of lab confirmed test required)
  2. been symptom free for 14 days

Sign up to donate plasma

Another way to help

Despite the shortage, we still restrict gay men from donating blood based on prejudice, not science. This blights our community and crimps much-needed donations. Let’s get rid of the restriction as urged by 500 medical professionals and 20 attorney generals.
