Numerous Jewish communities have launched plasma donation drives in conjunction with Bikur Cholim of Lakewood. Together we have determined that thankfully there are not enough confirmed cases in our community to warrant such a drive in Cleveland at this time.
Bikur Cholim of Cleveland has spoken with Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, and MetroHealth, and they are currently not offering plasma testing. We have informed them of the desire of the Jewish community to help should the need arise. As per their directive, anyone who wishes to donate plasma should contact Vitalant or American
Red Cross to see if they qualify.
