There is no deferral for COVID-19 vaccinations currently being administered in the U.S. and donors are not required to show status. Learn more about our Coronavirus Pandemic Response and COVID-19 Vaccinations. As part of the healthcare community, we are still requiring masks for donors, staff, volunteers and visitors to our facilities and blood drives but will provide updates if this changes. We will provide a mask for those who need one. Appointments are required but can be made the day of donation by contacting us at 800-747-5401.  

We're excited to announce that our organization is now officially named ImpactLife! Read more about our evolution here: www.bloodcenter.org/impactlife 

Keeping Families Whole

In May of 2013, Emily experienced a ruptured ectopic pregnancy that caused intense pain and internal bleeding. After collapsing at home, she was rushed to the hospital and into surgery where she received a blood transfusion.

Emily is with us today thanks to the skill and care of paramedics, doctors and nurses who treated her and the volunteer donors who helped save her life. 

"This kept my family whole," says Emily. "This kept me here. This allowed my son to still have a mother, and allowed my husband to still have a wife. It was a feeling of being forever grateful."

As the school year ends and summer holidays begin, the rate of blood donation decreases by about 20%, but patient need at hospitals we serve remains the same.

"This kept my family whole," says Emily. "This kept me here. This allowed my son to still have a mother, and allowed my husband to still have a wife. It was a feeling of being forever grateful."
