The COVID-19 pandemic is creating critical blood shortages in the U.S. An on-campus blood drive will be held from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Oct. 9 in the link near the Sprint/TFC Customer Center. Donors must wear a mask and must register (enter sponsor code: BJH); no walk-ins will be taken. All donated blood will be screened for the presence of COVID antibodies with donors receiving the results.
Shorten donation time by using RapidPass to complete the donation questionnaire prior to visiting a drive. Bring the printed questionnaire results with you or show them on a mobile device at the drive.
For a successful donation, hydrate, wear comfortable clothes, maintain a healthy level of iron in your diet before donating, bring an ID and a medication list.
