Anyone 16 years and older is welcome to donate. Any donors who are under 18 will need to fill out the Parent Consent Form (attached). This form must be signed in blue or black ink and returned on or before the day of the blood drive. Signed parental consent forms can be returned to Ms. Cecil or Ms. Rimmasch any time before the blood drive, or given directly to Vitalant staff the day of the drive.
All donors will also need to fill out the Health History Questionnaire. This can be filled out THE MORNING OF THE BLOOD DRIVE with the FAST TRACK link prior to donating blood (see attached document).
All donors should DRINK LOTS OF EXTRA WATER A COUPLE DAYS IN ADVANCE AND EAT A HUGE MEAL BEFORE DONATING BLOOD. EATING AN HOUR BEFORE DONATING REALLY HELPS.
