Due to vaccine supply constraints, we must suspend all first-dose vaccinations. Any appointments booked for January 20 and all later dates are now canceled, and we are not taking any new appointments.

At this time, we are able to fulfill all second-dose appointments and those appointments will not be affected.

Calling All COVID-19 Survivors: Plasma Donations Needed.

If you have recovered from COVID-19, you may be able to help patients suffering from coronavirus today. It’s as simple as donating your plasma.

Baptist Health hospitals use convalescent plasma (plasma collected from people who have recovered from coronavirus), to treat critically ill COVID-19 patients not responding to other therapies. Antibodies present in recovered patients have lifesaving potential, helping boost a patient’s immune system so that they can better fight the virus.

Convalescent plasma donations are urgently needed. If you have recovered from coronavirus, please consider donating your plasma.
