Donating Blood During the COVID-19 Pandemic is Safe

Coronavirus and Blood Donation

Even during COVID-19, blood donation is still a safe practice.There is no evidence that this coronavirus is transmissible by blood transfusion, and there have been no reported cases of transfusion transmission for any respiratory virus, including COVID-19. 

In addition, please note that at each blood drive and our Blood Donor Center, our employees follow thorough safety protocols to ensure blood recipient safety, as well as staff and donor safety.

Out of an abundance of caution, please note, that if you have traveled to: China (including Hong Kong and Macau), South Korea, Japan, Italy, or Iran in the last 28 days, please do not donate blood at this time.  You will be eligible to donate 28 days after your departure from any of these countries.

We are deeply grateful for our community’s continued support as we work together to respond to this health crisis. 

If you are currently eligible, please contact the Blood Donor Center to schedule your next donation at (626) 397-5422. We also welcome walk-ins.

More than ever, blood donations are urgently needed. It’s a quick step that any healthy person should do, especially now. By virtue of their health, travel history or other factors, many people cannot donate during this time. We urge you to donate if you can.

A pint of blood could potentially save three lives, and the rewards to you are considerable: doing good, getting your blood pressure and other vitals checked, burning calories and getting a coupon or shirt and tasty snacks! I’m 63 years old and just donated for the 120th time. Please join me in this vital act.” – David Kirchheimer, Huntington Hospital Board Member

Additional Information on Blood Donation

Your act of kindness makes and enormous difference! See our schedule of Blood Drives in the community. If you have additional questions, including how to prepare to give blood, please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions page or speak with staff in person at the Blood Donor Center.

The Blood Donor Center at Huntington Hospital provides comprehensive whole blood and therapeutic phlebotomy services. Learn more about our blood donation services.

Much of the medical care we provide depends on a steady supply of voluntary blood donations, and yet only 3 percent of the eligible donors in California give blood. The unfortunate result is chronically low blood supplies. This shortage affects the Trauma Center and the hospital’s ability to help those in need.

How You Can Help

  • Help support their transfusion needs, by making a replacement donation. Learn about the types of blood donation here.
  • Coordinate a list of family and friends who will also be willing to provide blood donations.
  • For your convenience our bloodmobile will come to you, simply suggest a sponsor to host a blood drive.
