NYBC is now increasing the nation’s supply of convalescent plasma by collecting donations from those who have recovered from COVID-19. NYBC will collect, process the plasma for infusion, and maintain a bank for hospitals to treat patients with serious or immediately life-threatening COVID-19 infections. We are asking all eligible donors to come forward so we can treat as many patients as possible.
We will be testing donors who make a blood or platelet donation for antibodies to COVID-19 from November 2 - December 31, 2020 at our fixed site donor centers only.
Donor centers in your neighborhood and almost 50 blood drives a day in NY, NJ and beyond.
Each time you save lives by making a blood, platelet or plasma donation you’ll earn Advantage points redeemable for a wide variety of gifts or gift cards.
There are lots of people alive today because of blood donors like you.
Most people are eligible to donate life-saving blood.
Donating is pretty easy…and we have some tips to make it even easier.
If you’re blood type is O-Negative, you’re a “Universal Donor,” because your blood can be transfused into anyone in an emergency.
