We encourage you to try out this new time-saving opportunity for donors, but it is not required. You can still complete the questionnaire at your blood donation location. Watch the video below to learn more about EarlyQ!
Step 1: For the best donation experience, we recommend you schedule an appointment. If you are unsure of when your last donation was, you can confirm your eligibility date by calling (800) 747-5401 or your online donor portal.
Step 2: Gather your personal information, including medications and travel information. If you are 16 years old, remember to bring your signed parental consent form along with you to your donation.
Step 3: Complete the questionnaire independently and in a private setting AFTER 12:00 a.m. (midnight) on the day of your donation. If you're unsure or unable to answer a question, skip it by clicking NEXT. Our staff will review with you at your donation.
Step 4: At the end of the questionnaire, you will be emailed (check your junk/spam folders as well) a QR code which you can either print or display on your phone at your donation. You can also take a screenshot of the QR code and save it to your phone photo library to display as well. The QR code will EXPIRE at 11:59 p.m. that same day. If you plan to print your code, you will need Adobe Acrobat. Click here for a free download.
