The fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and now the rising Delta variant is gaining help from organizations across the nation. Now, The Blood Connection in North Carolina is working to help relieve hospitals of some of their stress.
The Blood Connection (TBC), a local non-profit, community blood center, is offering COVID-19 antibody screening to all blood donors starting Wednesday, August 18. The antibody screening will test each donor’s blood to see if it contains antibodies from the COVID-19 vaccine and/or antibodies from exposure to the COVID-19 virus. TBC will be offering this testing for all donations for a limited time.
The Blood Connection holds an emergency press conference with its local hospital partners, UNC Rex Healthcare, and WakeMed Health, to explain the current state of blood supply.
