The Bollullos de la Mitación Health Center will host a blood donation day on Monday, September 25, under the motto “Our veins have superpowers”.
Those interested in making a donation can do so from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm, using this generous gesture to help save another’s life or hasten their recovery. Blood from all groups is currently needed.
The requirements for donation are to weigh more than 50 kilograms, reach the legal age, be in good health, and not fasting.
There must be at least 2 months between donations. Men can donate blood 4 times a year; women 3 times a year.
Before you donate, a doctor will examine you to determine if you can donate. This way, donating does not put your health at risk. The procedure includes a small blood test to rule out possible anemia.
Donating blood lasts 15 minutes; 15 minutes can save a life.
After donating blood, replenish it with food (especially fluids) and light rest. The food will be provided to donors at the donation location.
On the day of donation, you are not allowed to participate in sports activities, either 12 hours before or 24 hours after donation.
