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, 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. Please use your computer (desktop or laptop) or smart phone to complete questionnaire.
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.
