Blood Bank in Critical Need of Donors

The NIH Blood Bank is in critical need of group O blood donors. 

Due to several surgeries and other procedures, inventory of O-positive and O-negative blood is very low. Patients in the Clinical Center need help. Both local and regional inventories of this blood type are dangerously low.

The Blood Bank is accepting donations by appointment only due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Also, physical distancing and additional cleaning procedures have been implemented. 

Call (301) 496-1048 or email to schedule an appointment.
