In most cases, there is no deferral for donating blood after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.
To increase capacity while maintaining social distancing, we have expanded hours at select donor centers.
Updated FDA guidelines have reduced some deferral periods and may allow some previously deferred donors to now be eligible.
Donor Day celebrations bring together a group of people to donate blood at a Memorial Blood Centers donor center.
Every 2 seconds someone needs blood. Based on your blood type and where the need is greatest, there are many ways to give.
O negative is the universal blood type, which means it can be given to anyone in need like trauma victims or preemie babies.
When you partner with Memorial Blood Centers as a blood drive sponsor, you help save and sustain lives right here at home.
Save time and complete your health history questionnaire on the day of your donation from the privacy of your home or office.
Tell us about your donation experience! Please have your donation number available, located on the back of your Donor Care Guide.
38% of the U.S. population are eligible to give blood, yet only 7% do.
