URGENT NEED FOR VOLUNTEER DONORS - Low supply of type O red blood cells, AB plasma and Convalescent Plasma. Blood 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.
