PDHI and eTrueNorth Join “The Fight Is In Us” Campaign Encouraging COVID-19 Survivors to Donate Plasma

PDHI and eTrueNorth have collaborated to participate in the federal government’s The Fight Is In Us campaign. This broad-based national campaign will encourage all individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 to donate plasma that may help others diagnosed with the virus.

eTrueNorth enables laboratory testing at retail pharmacies and more than 50% of all drive-through COVID-19 specimen collection sites supported by PDHI’s ConXus Platform. Individuals who receive a COVID-19 positive test result from the 350 drive-through specimen collection sites will now receive communications via email about the benefits of donating plasma.

When an individual recovers from COVID-19, they produce antibodies that may be able to help others. This is called convalescent plasma. A COVID-19 survivor’s convalescent plasma may be transfused into patients struggling against the virus or used to develop another potential treatment.

Individuals who have had a positive test result from one of the drive-through specimen collection sites will be asked to consider donating plasma by visiting https://thefightisinus.org/. COVID-19 survivors can then learn if they are eligible to participate and find their closest donation center.

How to Get a COVID-19 Test

Individuals that desire a COVID-19 test should visit www.doineedacovid19test.com, to identify the specimen collection sites that are coordinated by eTrueNorth. Upon registering, individuals can select a location, date and time for specimen collection. Results are available within three to five business days of specimen collection.
