After recovering from coronavirus, Jennifer Aydin is donating her plasma to the Newbridge Medical Center in Bergen, New Jersey. The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member offered a glimpse at her recent visit to the hospital, which took place a little over two months after she tested positive for COVID-19.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

On June 17, Jennifer took to Instagram to share a photo of herself wearing a mask while hooked up to an IV in the hospital. “Donated my plasma to help covid patients for @newbridgemedicalcenter 600ml!! Did you know needles and blood don’t bother me?? Woo-hoo!!” she wrote, also adding the hashtag, “#beatthatcovid.”

Jennifer first revealed that she had tested positive for coronavirus back in early April, several days after experiencing extreme fatigue and other symptoms. She later revealed that her dad, who was staying with her family at the time, had been diagnosed with the virus as well. Jennifer's 12-year-daughter, Gabby, also experienced symptoms of the virus, although she was never officially tested.

Jennifer isn’t the only Bravoleb to donate plasma after recovering from coronavirus. In May, Jim Edmonds, who revealed he tested positive for COVID-19 after feeling “super sick,” also donated his plasma at Mercy Hospital in St. Louis.
