Blood donor eligibility is based on current regulations set forth by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
On the initial visit, prospective donors are asked to complete a questionnaire on their medical history and are given a mini physical exam to assure they are healthy and fit enough to donate.
At each visit, vital signs are checked and medical history is reviewed to verify there have be no significant changes with a donors health.
Primary blood donor requirements to consider include:
1. Donor must weigh at least 110 pounds.
2. Donor must be at least 18 years of age. Donors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent.
3. Donors can donate once every 8 weeks.
4. Donors that have been recently diagnosed with an autoimmune disease or specific medical condition are considered “Specialty Donors” and will be required to participate in additional qualifying procedures required to donate blood.
