Blood/Plasma Doner? Watch where you travel 🌼Retweets Appreciated

Giving blood and plasma can be one of the greatest gifts that you can give to a community or in a time of crisis.

Many Bloodbanks have strict rules on when you are allowed to donate if you have been to certain countries within a period of time.

Our Bloodbank in Missouri won’t let you donate for ONE full year if you’ve been to Cambodia, 30 days if you’ve been to China or Vietnam.  These are just a few examples.

My wife has a rare blood type that can be used on anyone.  She gave often and made a difference.   Now she is unable to donate for a year and the blood bank is having a fit.  Check with your local facility for their rules especially if you have a rare, high need blood type.  Donate before you go.
