Canadian Blood Services presents Help Prevent Shortages: Consider Making a Blood Donation

Date:Ongoing
Location:    This event takes place online or in a virtual format with no specific physical location. See description for more details.

It’s safe to donate blood during COVID-19, and critical for patients. Canadian Blood Services urges all donors to book and keep their appointments to prevent shortages. Donating blood in Canada continues to be safe. Their robust cleaning and infection-control practices protect all donors, staff and volunteers. All prospective donors are also carefully screened for any symptoms of illness, including very mild ones. This screening occurs during both appointment booking and upon arrival at the donor centre or event. Those with any symptoms are not allowed to donate blood and are instructed not to visit.
