Host a blood drive
Donate this Thanksgiving: Ensure there’s enough blood available so doctors don’t have
to decide who gets blood and who must wait.
Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. This could be a little girl in the ICU or a mother with Stage 3 leukemia. If you’re worried about needles, don’t be—most blood donors compare the experience to a mild, split-second pinch! The entire process is very safe and very fast, and you will feel amazing knowing you potentially saved up to three people.
All healthy donors are urged to donate now; if you’ve had COVID-19 and have been symptom-free for 10 days, you are eligible to donate. Whatever your COVID-19 vaccination status, you are ABSOLUTELY allowed to give blood or platelets.
Preliminary results are available in minutes at your first blood donation. Vitalant is now offering first-time donors an initial screening test. Learn more.
If you are inspired to make an impact and are passionate about playing a vital role in our dedicated team, then we encourage you to consider a career at Vitalant.
