AABB recently launched a new website to share information with the public, blood collectors and clinicians about convalescent plasma from individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 (CCP). FDA recently announced new guidelines permitting the use of CCP as an investigational treatment for patients with moderate or severe COVID-19 infections. Many AABB-accredited blood centers are now collecting CCP. The website,, includes information to help identify eligible CCP donors and a tool to assist those donors in contacting their local blood center or hospital blood collector to schedule a CCP donation. In addition, the website provides CCP resources for blood collectors and the blood community.
