The blood supply is a critical part of our healthcare system. It is imperative for healthy individuals to donate blood so that it’s available to those in need. Due to the current public health crisis and social distancing rules, donors must make an appointment to schedule an appointment visit nybc.org/cu or call NYBC at (800) 933-2566. (Walk-ins only if room capacity and appointment scheduling permits.)
Donating blood is safe and it only takes one hour. New York Blood Center (NYBC) is taking extra precautions to help prevent the person-to-person spread of COVID-19. NYBC staff are also practicing health self-assessments prior to presenting at work.
