Blood Bank

Blood Bank

 

 

 You don’t need a special reason to give blood -- You just need your own reason.

 St.Louis' Next Blood Bank is Monday October 22, 2018

Watch this space for more info (blink a few times so your eyes don't dry up)

 

 Blood Donors Must:

  • Be healthy*
  • Be at least 17 years old in most states, or 16 years old with parental consent if allowed by state law
  • Weigh at least 110 lbs.
    Additional weight requirements apply for donors 18 years old and younger and all high school donors.

* Note: Healthy means that you feel well and can perform normal activities. If you have a chronic condition such as diabetes, healthy also means that you are being treated and the condition is under control.


 Come prepared.

  • Have a light meal and plenty to drink.
  • Bring your donor card, driver's license or two other forms of identification.
  • Bring the names of medications you are taking. 

You will receive a mini physical to check your:

  • Pulse
  • Blood pressure
  • Body temperature
  • Hemoglobin
