blood drive

Please come out to support the blood drive on Tuesday, November 3, from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the SULLIVAN CIVIC CENTER.   Blood has a limited shelf-life and it is imperative that we keep the blood supply strong. Thirty percent of the blood collected comes from high schools and colleges.  We need our community to help fill that void and ensure we have a strong supply of blood EVERY day!

Versiti is pleased to announce the SARS CoV-2 antibody test (aka COVID-19 Antibody Test) will be performed on all blood donations beginning August 17th, 2020 as part of our standard testing. We will be conducting this test as we continue to fight the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic with the help of you, our donors.

The antibody test will be performed on all successful donations at Versiti blood drives and in donor centers. It will be done automatically on tubes that are collected as a normal part of the donation, in addition to other FDA mandated infectious disease testing our donor testing lab already performs.  

The test will inform donors if they have antibodies reflective of a prior COVID-19 infection and is not to inform donors if they currently have COVID-19.

Donors with these antibodies may also be eligible to donate COVID-19 convalescent plasma. We are partnering with our community hospitals to help COVID-19 patients specifically through this donation.
