How often can one give blood?
Regulations in the United States allow people to donate whole blood once every 56 days.
How do I know if I am eligible to donate blood?
You must be in good health, be at least 17 years old, and weigh at least 110 pounds.
What can I do if I am not eligible to donate?
While you may be unable to donate blood, there are other ways you can help. You can recruit other suitable donors or volunteer to help make a donor’s experience a positive one.
Please contact Student Activities at 487-1963 to volunteer.
How long does it take to donate blood?
The whole process takes about an hour. It starts with registration, a health history, and a mini-physica l. Then comes the actual donation, which usually takes less than 10-12 minutes. Afterward, you will be asked to spend a few minutes in the "canteen" where you can have a light refreshment before returning to your normal activities.
