Once a recovered COVID patient has tested positive with sufficient COVID antibodies, our team will work with you to schedule a donation appointment. Upon arrival at the donation facility and after initial processing, a needle is inserted into one’s arm to draw some blood. The plasma (with the COVID antibodies) is extracted from the blood and then it is returned to the body. The process repeats itself several times and takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Other than the mild discomfort of a routine blood test, the process is painless and extremely safe.
