OBI recruiting convalescent plasma donors
In the face of rising COVID-19 hospitalizations, Oklahoma Blood Institute is announcing an aggressive new campaign aimed at recruiting more convalescent plasma donors. Starting this week, convalescent plasma donors will be entered for a chance to win one of the two $1,000 prizes given away to that day’s roster of convalescent plasma donors. This giveaway will provide another reason for qualifying, recovered COVID-19 patients to join the 20 or so similar heroes currently coming in to give each day.
The need for convalescent plasma in our area has increased over 700 percent in the recent weeks, with demand now regularly greater than collections. Available supplies have reached critical levels, and patients will face delays in this lifesaving care if donors cannot be recruited in higher numbers.
