URGENT NEED FOR VOLUNTEER DONORS - Low supply of type O red blood cells, AB plasma and Convalescent PlasmaBlood donation is safe and essential!  Recent changes to donor eligibility criteria may allow more to give. Please fill out the deferral/eligibility inquiry form if you have questions.

There is no deferral period for volunteer donors who receive COVID-19 Vaccines and wish to give whole blood, double reds or platelet/plasma apheresis donations.  However, due to uncertainty of the immune response from the vaccine, donations cannot be used for Convalescent Plasma for COVID-19 patients.

What happens when a pair of like-minded, generous volunteers happen to meet at a blood drive?

“About 10 years ago I was donating, actually at a mobile blood drive at my company's location,” says Lesa Morgan, a regular donor at our St. Peters (Missouri) Donor Center. “There were donors from some other nearby companies there and I ended sitting down and donating next to a very friendly guy…” That chance meeting of like-minded, generous volunteer donors was just the beginning.
