You may have heard of the shortage of blood.

The Red Cross will not take mine since a false positive test for Hepatices C.

Anyone here donate blood?

Regularly. In fact I have an appointment this afternoon. Its a win-win. Donating keeps my hematocrit levels in the normal range, and LifeSouth gets the blood.

I wonder if they’ll stop taking blood from the unvaccinated? Seriously, anyone know? I have no idea as the Red Cross won’t take my blood. My travel history in the Marines crosses me off the list. Guess I could lie?

I have a cousin with extremely rare blood. She could make a living by regularly donating blood, but never does.

I've seen reports that they won't take vaxxed blood. But I haven't been able to verify.

I give as often as I can. I’m O negative negative which means that I get phoned, texted and emailed when I’m eligible. I had an uncle who had the very rare type and they actually told him not to donate. They wanted him available in case they needed his blood type. I encourage everyone to donate if they can. Dave

I used too, until the last tech stuck me 4 times, and missed my vein every time. She finally got it, but my arm was bruised. She also wanted my Buckmark cap, I didnt give it to her and havent beeen back since.

Gave a few months ago, time to give again. Seems when I go to make an appointment nobody is in my local town.


If there's a big shortage they should offer $$$ to donors. Nurses get paid. Doctors get paid. Hospitals get paid. The donor?

Would you rather receive blood from a freewill donor. or someone that needs the money?

Yea. It took less time to find out you're wrong than it took you to write that. Seriously, WTF. This is how stupid spreads.

I always thought if they were to pay even a nominal amount they would maybe get a few more donors. I know the plasma place sure has a lot of cars in the parking lot.
