Calvary is hosting a blood drive!
When you give blood, you have the potential to help hospital patients within our community and, when the need arises, others across the country.
The last thing hospitals should have to worry about during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic is the availability of lifesaving blood. When you come to donate, you’re not only helping trauma patients, those battling diseases and others, but you’re also supporting our heroes on the front lines. All blood and platelet donations are tested for COVID-19 antibodies.
The process takes about an hour and extra precautions are being taken to help ensure the health and safety of donors and staff.
1. There is no inherent risk of getting coronavirus from the donation procedure itself. To minimize the risk of contracting it from others at a blood drive or donation center, blood donation staff follow rigorous safety and disinfection protocols that include wearing gloves and personal protective gear, wiping down donor-touched areas often and after every collection, using sterile collection sets for every donation/collection, and arm scrubbing for 30 seconds.
2. Blood donation does not impact or weaken a donor’s immune system.
3. All Vitalant blood donations are now being tested for the SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.
4. For the safety of all, only blood donors are permitted to enter the donation site, please do not bring family and friends with you.
