The San Diego Blood Bank will accept blood donations at Starbucks Coffee on Saturday, July 9, 2016 from 8 a.m. ‑ 1:30 p.m. The drive will be held at:
4227 Genesee Avenue, San Diego, 92117
The San Diego Blood Bank is experiencing a shortage of donations, due in part to the Zika virus travel deferral, which asks donors who’ve traveled to Mexico, the Caribbean, Central or South America to wait 28 days after returning to the U.S. to begin donating again. All blood types are needed. Current inventory for the universal blood type, O negative, is at critically low levels.
Donors must meet the following eligibility requirements:
– 17 and older
– 114 pounds and in good health
It is recommended that donors consume an adequate meal and plenty of fluids prior to giving. A photo identification must be presented upon signing up to donate.
Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment for their convenience but walk-ins are also welcome.
To schedule an appointment, please call (619) 469-7322 or visit www.SanDiegoBloodBank.org
