You Can Still Donate Blood: At a Bloodworks Donor Center.

Due to restrictions enacted in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Bloodworks has made a decision to continue the “pause” on all mobile blood drives for the month of June.
We have had to cancel the blood drive date for One and Two Union Square on Tuesday, June 23rd.   A significant and necessary step to ensure the safety of our staff, donors and the community.

These essential measures have taken away the usual setting for mobile blood drives that account for 60% of collections (equivalent to 34,000 units since March 1st).  With hospitals preparing to re-start surgeries, organ transplants and cancer treatments, that were suspended in March, donors are needed now, and in the coming months. Patient needs and requests from Bloodworks’ healthcare partners are rising quickly, and could reach pre-COVID levels as early as next week before the blood supply is ready.

If you are looking for a way a help in this pandemic, you still can!

To meet ongoing community needs, donors are also encouraged to make an appointment at one of Bloodworks Donor Centers by appointment only to keep everyone safe throughout the donation process. Additionally, we’ve spaced out Center appointments, are not accepting walk-in donations at this time, and no one under age 16 is permitted on-site. These measures ensure adequate social distancing and a safe, controlled experience at our centers for all donors and staff. That means it’s even more important for donors to schedule their appointments for the coming months to ensure blood will always be available. If you need assistance in booking your appointment at a Center, email us or call 800-398-7888. You may also schedule online.

Bloodworks has also been able to schedule some Pop Up Centers in the area to accommodate donors that wish to help.  While the staff work on mobile drives, they come into close proximity with each other during the set up and break down and driving together to the site. Having the same location over a period of a week or more, limits the need to be in close contact to each other.

Blood donation remains a safe and essential activity and is encouraged under the stay-at-home order. Donating blood plays a key role in public health emergencies and patient care.

Bloodworks has posted information addressing questions and concerns for blood donors at bloodworksnw.org/coronavirus and information about who can donate.
Blood donation takes about an hour from registration to post-donation refreshment.
