Convalescent Plasma Request

Munson Healthcare throughout Northern Michigan is requesting that people who have had COVID-19 consider offering Convalescent Plasma to help others currently fighting COVID-19.  People who have fully recovered from COVID-19 after at least two weeks are encouraged to consider donating plasma. This may help save the lives of other patients.
The increase in COVID-19 in-patient volumes is reducing the plasma supply.  If you or someone you know has had COVID-19 and is interested in helping, please complete this online form, or contact Dr. William Kanner MD by email at wkanner@mhc.net or call (231) 392-7139 if you have questions.  Individuals must have had a prior diagnosis of COVID-19 documented by a laboratory test and meet other donor qualifications. Individuals must have complete resolution of symptoms for at least 14 days prior to making donation. A negative lab test for active COVID-19 disease is not necessary to qualify for plasma donation.
Thank you, in advance, for supporting our community.
