FIGHT IT FORWARD
COVID-19 survivors: you’ve got a lot of fight in you.
Because your immune system fought off COVID-19, you now have antibodies in you that could help others fight it off too.
Please donate your COVID-19 plasma today. See if you qualify and find a donor center near you.
STEPS YOU CAN TAKE AFTER EXPOSURE
Exposed or Symptomatic:
If you’ve been exposed or have symptoms, self-isolate, use Coronavirus Self-Checker, and get tested.
Consult with your physician immediately. They can recommend steps you can take to recover at home.
Your physician can determine if you qualify for Monoclonal Antibody treatment. This treatment is most effective if given as soon as possible.
Your physician may recommend Convalescent Plasma Therapy and/or Remdesivir upon admission. Dexamethasone may also be considered as part of your treatment.
14 days after symptoms end, please consider donating plasma to help others. Donations should begin as early as possible after recovery.
If you have lingering symptoms, be sure to consult your physician and/or a post-COVID care center.
