Blood Donations Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get the blood mobile to come to my place of employment?
Get a group of people willing to donate. The more people that are able to donate blood the better. Your donation serves our community. All blood donated stays to help the patients within Lee Health.
How long does the process take?
The entire life-saving process takes approximately 45 minutes. The actual donation time is only 5-10 minutes. Needles and bags used to collect blood are used only once and discarded, which makes the spread of infection to the donor not possible.
What are the requirements to donate?
Before you can donate blood, make sure you meet the requirements before donating:
- Weigh at least 115 pounds
- Be at least 17 years old, or 16 with parental consent
- Provide photo ID, if a new donor
What are the ineligibles to donate?
There are several reasons a potential donor is deferred from donating, including:
- Currently ill — cold, flu, sore throat — or being treated for an illness.
- Recent dental surgery (no infection and off antibiotics)
- Other blood or plasma donation within the last eight weeks
- History of hepatitis
- Positive HIV test
