Vitalant is hosting a blood drive Saturday at Ventana Ranch Community Center from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
According to Vitalant: “Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. This could be a little girl in the ICU or a mother with Stage 3 leukemia. If you’re worried about needles, don’t be — most blood donors compare the experience to a mild, split-second pinch. The entire process is very safe and very fast, and you will feel amazing knowing you potentially saved up to three people. All healthy donors are urged to donate now; if you’ve had COVID-19 and have been symptom-free for 10 days, you are eligible to donate. Whatever your COVID-19 vaccination status, you are absolutely allowed to give blood or platelets.”
