Every 2 seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. This constant need for blood can only be met by generous donors like you, and when you give blood, you could save the life of a cancer patient or someone needing open-heart surgery. 

Donating blood is safe and easy to do. If you're in good health and meet the general eligibility criteria, then you are likely able to give blood. There are some additional eligibility requirements you should know about. LEARN MORE ABOUT WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO GIVE  Significant updates have been made to blood donation eligibility in recent years allowing even more people to help save lives through blood donation.

Like all U.S. blood centers, Vitalant is required to follow eligibility guidelines issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). More information on the FDA

I believe the idea that my blood could help save a life is so amazing. Even though I am not a trained medical professional, I can still make a positive impact on others.
