County Kicks Off Annual Blood Drive, Public Welcome | News

Help save lives by rolling up your sleeves and donating blood to 38ου Annual county blood and marrow registry unit.

The month-long event officially kicked off Monday outside the County Administration Center. Chairman of the Board of Supervisors Nathan Fletcher was the first to make a donation.

The county’s blood donation is one of the largest conducted by the San Diego Blood Bank. More than 20 county facilities will participate this year with the overall goal of collecting 500 pints for local hospitals. The events are open to the public, as well as to the employees of the Prefecture.

Throughout its 38-year history, the county’s annual blood donations have raised more than 20,000 pints of blood. Each pint can save up to three lives. The San Diego Blood Bank says over the years, county blood donations could have saved up to 60,000 lives.

Currently, there is a critical need for blood donations and all blood types are welcome. Appointments are highly encouraged, but donor assistants will be accepted if open times are available.

The COVID-19 guidelines will continue to apply and all donors and staff must wear masks. For questions about procrastination or blood donations related to COVID-19, see Blood Bank Instructions for eligibility. If you can not donate, family or friends are welcome.
