Care Connections At Home is partnering with SunCoast Blood Centers to do a mobile blood drive on August 20, 2020. The event will take place at our office location: 6151 Lake Osprey Dr. Suite 300, Sarasota, FL 34240 from 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm.
If you successfully donate blood, you’ll receive a free COVID-19 antibody test. All donors receive a Carrabba’s Italian Grill coupon to Buy One Entrée, Get One Free.
We encourage anyone who has previously tested positive for COVID-19 AND has fully recovered from the illness to donate their plasma which contains antibodies to fight SARS-CoV-2 and possibly save the life of someone critically ill with the virus.
TO BE ELIGIBLE YOU MUST:
- Be symptom-free more than 14 days
- Provide written documentation of a positive COVID-19 test result
- Meet FDA donor eligibility guidelines
If you think you had COVID-19…
but were not tested for the virus you may be eligible to donate convalescent plasma. SunCoast will run a serological test to determine if you had past exposure to the virus, you can donate.
