Blood Drive, 11/18/2020, 8 AM – 12 PM
Do you know if your medications, diabetes, surgery or other conditions make you ineligible to donate blood? Or are you just assuming that is the case?
OneBlood, who runs our bloodmobile, requests that you do not self defer. They state on their website that “Many potential blood donors believe that they can’t donate blood due to medical or other reasons. But whether you’ve heard or read information about blood donation restrictions or been turned down in the past, please do not self defer. You may be able to say “Yes I can!” and share your power through lifesaving blood donations.”
OneBlood’s Eligibility FAQ’s page answers whether or not medications, diabetes, surgery or other conditions make you ineligible to donate blood.
COVID Restrictions: “Do not present to donate if you have a fever. You must wait at least 14 days before donating if you have been exposed to someone who has or may have COVID-19, have recently been tested and are pending test results for COVID-19 or if you have a confirmed active case of COVID-19.”
Donate blood at the La Casa Rec Hall on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM. An ID is required.
All donors will receive a OneBlood Gift & a $10 eGift Card! Plus, all donors receive a wellness checkup including COVID-19 antibody test, blood pressure, temperature, iron count, pulse and cholesterol screening!
