CCP - Donor

CBC was the first blood center in Ohio to launch a COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma collection program at the height of the pandemic in April of 2020.  The antibody-rich plasma from COVID-19 survivors was in high demand to treat critically ill coronavirus patients at local hospitals and outside our region.

Thanks to the overwhelming response of COVID-19 survivors who donated CCP and CBC/CTS staff who dedicated themselves to the success of the CCP program, we have aided countless recoveries and helped save lives.

Due to the current supply of COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma, we are currently suspending any new appointments to donate CCP and will cease further collection after March 20.


Our thanks to CCP donors for your dedication and compassion! Recent CCP donations have helped satisfy the declining but still present need for CCP at local hospitals and to contribute to the national stockpile of CCP in preparation for any possible surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.
