Vitalant Needs Your Blood
You can probably imagine how bad the pandemic affected their business.
The need for blood is continuous. We are fortunate to have a blood center here in Lubbock and some pretty cool people who contribute. It takes a lot for someone to walk in every three or four months and get stuck, and it takes even more to do it while there is a pandemic going on.
Your donation right now is so important, and you will also get a FREE COVID 19 antibody test. It takes a couple of weeks to process, but it will show up right there on your history. You could even end up saving lives by being a convalescent plasma donor.
I can't wait to get back into the chair. A dental procedure eliminated me for consideration for a year. I find blood donation to be one of the easiest and most fulfilling things you can do.
Here's what Vitalant is doing to keep you safe:
COVID-19 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS We are taking extra precautions to protect our staff and donors.
- Temperature checks upon arrival
- 6 feet of space between donors
- Continuous sanitization
- Approved masks required for all donors and staff (one-way valve masks not allowed)
- To support social distancing, appointments are strongly encouraged
