Since our call for support on March 16, we have seen a notable increase in blood donations that has helped maintain the blood inventory in the short term, and we thank donors for their generosity. But this effort is a marathon, not a sprint.
We urge donors to book appointments over the next few weeks to help maintain an adequate level of blood and blood products for patients in Canada.
Since blood products have a limited shelf life, demand is constant. We will keep reminding people about this as we work through the evolving COVID-19 situation. We have available appointments Monday April 13th 11am-3pm, Friday April 17th 10am-2pm, Monday April 20th 1pm-6pm, Friday April 24th 10am-2pm, Monday April 27th 10am-2pm. Please book online at blood.ca or call 1 888 2 DONATE (236-6283) The Kingston Donor Centre thanks you for supporting our centre.
