To donate, individuals must be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in generally good health. Please note that all donors will automatically be tested for antibodies for the novel coronavirus. Thank you, in advance, for your generous donation.

Donating blood is a simple, four-step process that includes registration, a confidential medical history survey and a mini-physical, the actual donation process, and a post-donation snack and beverage. The brief mini-physical checks your body’s temperature, blood pressure, pulse, and hemoglobin to ensure that your blood is safe and ready to give. The actual blood donation takes about eight to 10 minutes. After your donation, you’ll enjoy a refreshing snack and be back to your regular daily routine after a brief rest.

If you are interested in giving blood, please contact Vitalant at 1-800-456-7057 or online at

Know Before You Go

  • Donating blood is a safe process. A sterile needle is used only once for each donor and then discarded.
  • Donors can give either whole blood or specific blood components (red cells, plasma, or platelets).
  • Healthy bone marrow makes a constant supply of red cells, plasma, and platelets. The body will replenish the elements given during a blood donation – some in a matter of hours and others in a matter of weeks.
  • All donated blood is tested for HIV, hepatitis B and C, syphilis, and other infectious diseases before it is released to hospitals.
