The Zika virus can impact the eligibility of donors. You may have been following the recent Zika Virus information in the news. To ensure the safety of our blood, we are asking donors to wait 28 upon returning to the United States if you have traveled to Mexico, the Caribbean, and/or Central or South America. Attached you will find information that you can share with your employees regarding the virus, and our request that donors self-defer for the 28 days upon their return to ensure our blood supply remains safe.
Thank you for your dedication to safe blood donation!
