For a limited time, the American Red Cross will test all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies as an additional health service to our donors. This testing may provide critical insight into whether donors may have possibly been exposed to this coronavirus. An antibody test screens for antibodies in your blood, which are formed when fighting an infection, like COVID-19. An antibody test assesses whether your immune system has responded to the infection, not if the virus is currently present. The COVID-19 antibody test is authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and may indicate if the donor’s immune system has produced antibodies to the coronavirus, regardless of whether they developed symptoms. The results of your antibody test will be available by logging in to your Blood Donor account on the Blood Donor App or online about 7 to 10 days after your donation.
For the safety of our donor community and in accordance with CDC guidelines, all donors are required to wear a face covering or mask. Please bring a face covering or mask to your donation. If you do not have one, a mask will be provided to you. Thank you.
All donors must make an appointment. No walk-ins at this blood drive. Make an appointment today at http://www.redcrossblood.org/Donate/Blood and enter: Saintmarkpres
Did you know that there is no upper age limit for blood donation?
Did you know that most drugs are now acceptable when donating blood. Call 1-866-236-3276 to see if your medication is acceptable.
Please mark your calendar and give. The need is always very great to ensure blood is available during emergencies when every second matters and to ensure blood is available so needed surgeries are not delayed.
Members of the community are welcome to be a part of the Blood Drive
