The GCAM Plasma Center in Sacramento is willing to pay plasma donors.

The center, at 4333 Florin Road, will pay $25 for the first donation, $30 for the next and $25 for each donation after that. People can donate up to twice every seven days.

Donors must be between 18 and 65 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good health and bring a photo ID.

The center is taking donations Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Donated plasma is used to make medicine, help burn victims and create vaccines for things like hepatitis and the flu.

A first-time donation usually takes between three and four hours. The donor must submit to a physical examination and fill out paper work. Subsequent donations only take anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes.

For more information, contact the center at (916) 391-8885.
