Senator Bill Dodd – District 3

Thank you for your interest in signing up to be an organ, eye and tissue donor in California. The need is urgent:

  • California ranks first among all states with more than 23,000 men, women and children on the organ transplant waiting list.
  • Of those on the transplant list in California, 85% are in need of a life-saving kidney.
  • On average, 22 people die each day in the U.S. (about 7,600 each year) because the organ they needed did not come available for transplant in time.

YOU can help us in our fight to give more people on the waiting list hope that they too, will get their second chance at life. Below, we have outlined the number of individuals who are waiting for a life-saving transplant in the counties that include the district I serve.

High concentration of Azithromycin in infected tissues is also caused by the fact that phagocytes and macrophages transport it to the site of infection and release in the area of inflammation. Azithromycin is prescribed in case of illness or injury at the time.
