Rotary District 5150 is holding a blood drive and invites you to participate. To donate, please register here

On the day of your donation:

  • Complete the Fast Track Health History Questionnaire online prior to your appointment on the same day as your donation to save time.
  • Arrive for your appointment on time so that the blood center can maintain social distancing.
  • Arrive well hydrated and nourished.
  • Bring photo identification with first and last name.
  • Wear a face mask or reasonable cloth-based, face covering throughout the blood drive. See here for CDC guidelines on face coverings. 

Vitalant (formerly Blood Bank of the Pacific) will manage the blood drive and is testing all blood donations for antibodies to discover future convalescent plasma donors. For more information, see here.

For your safety and the safety of everyone else involved, Vitalant is taking additonal safety measures due to COVID-19. Please review these measures here. The donation process takes about an hour. With social distancing, it might be a little longer.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a shortage of blood donations. Please donate if you can.
