Did you know that the current national blood shortage has lasted longer than any other in recent history? Currently, our local community is experiencing an ongoing and urgent need for blood product donations of all types from healthy and eligible blood donors.
In response to such a critical situation, the Baylor Scott & White Blood Center is showing our appreciation to those individuals who dedicate the time to donate these life-saving blood products by providing COVID-19 antibody testing on successful donations, for a limited time.
This is not a COVID-19 test, and is not meant to diagnose an active infection. If you are feeling ill, do not attempt to give blood. Blood donors are required to feel healthy and well at the time of donation. If you do not feel well, please contact your primary care provider.
Testing for COVID-19 antibodies is performed to indicate a person may have been exposed to the coronavirus, at which time your body may develop antibodies to the virus.
During registration for your donation, you will be given the opportunity to complete a request form to have your results mailed to you. Requested results will be mailed to the address you provide within 2 weeks of your successful donation. Results will not be released by phone.
