Because of You, Life Doesn’t Stop

Many blood drives have been cancelled, so your individual donations matter now more than ever. We are now testing all donors for COVID-19 antibodies. Whether you’re eligible to give whole blood; recovered from COVID-19 and can donate convalescent plasma; or can host a blood drive, you are saving lives. Learn how you can become part of the COVID Rescue Team by going to Vitalant.org

Blood donors only need to be at least 16 years old, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be healthy.  16 – 22 year old donors will need to meet additional height and weight requirements. 16 year old donors must present a minor donor permit signed by a parent or guardian – go to www.vitalant.org to find the form.
