Know Your COVID-19 Antibody Status!

Saturday, December 12, Texas CARES is providing free COVID-19 antibody tests to Texans (5-80 years of age). Texas CARES is offered by the UTHealth School of Public Health and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). Help us understand how COVID-19 antibodies work in our community.

To enroll, complete the consent and short survey online at https://go.uth.edu/txcares. You will receive a confirmation text message with the order number for your COVID-19 antibody test as well as a link to the CPL location finder.

You will not need to go to CPL for your test. Your test will be administered at South Texas Blood & Tissue Center’s Donor Pavilion. You can also sign-up to donate blood! Bring your picture ID & confirmation
text message.

We want to hear from Texans (5-80 years of age) who have never been tested or have tested negative or positive for COVID-19! Two participants per household are eligible. Bring a friend!

For more than 45 years, the nonprofit South Texas Blood & Tissue Center has focused on a critical purpose: to save and improve lives.

Inspired by a group of physicians, our organization was formed to provide blood to the South Texas region – ensuring a safe and adequate blood supply through proper testing, storage and distribution to hospitals. This essential service allows front-line workers to focus on the direct care of patients, with confidence that this lifesaving resource will be there when it’s needed most.

But we didn’t stop there. Over the years, we’ve evolved as the needs of our patients and hospitals have changed, driven to save lives in as many ways as possible.

We couldn’t do this without donors like you. We understand that the gift of donation is a personal, powerful choice that has the potential to touch a life. Today, we offer many ways to make a difference that include:

Our team has also expanded its programs, partnering with leaders within the healthcare industry to develop a wide range of therapies. We’ve recently developed programs to collect and distribute COVID-19 convalescent plasma, as well as improve trauma care.
