Emergency Call for Blood Donors
Please call (301) 496-1048 to schedule a donation
The NIH Blood Bank is in urgent need of Type O blood donors. Several very ill patients have required large quantities of Type O blood, which has severely depleted the inventory. If you are a Type O blood donor, please call (301) 496-1048 to make an appointment to donate blood at the Blood Bank (Department of Transfusion Medicine), located on the first floor of the Clinical Center, Building 10, on the NIH main campus in Bethesda, Maryland. Walk-in donors are also welcome. The NIH Blood Bank is open Tuesday through Friday, from 7:30 AM until 5:30 PM. Convenient, free parking is available directly adjacent to the Blood Bank entrance.
If you have not donated blood before and are not sure if you are eligible, visit http://www.cc.nih.gov/blooddonor/index.html to learn more about being a donor at NIH.
Your generosity is appreciated.
