As the COVID-19 vaccine becomes more available this spring, the American Red Cross is reminding the public that the need for blood remains.

As long as donors are symptom-free, feeling well, and can provide the vaccine manufacturer’s name, there’s no waiting period required after receiving a COVID-19 currently authorized in the U.S.

Donors, especially those with Type O blood, are needed in May to ensure blood products are available for patients now and into the summer.

Those who come to give blood, plasma, or platelets in May will automatically be entered for a chance to win a travel trailer camper that sleeps five and is powered by Suburban Propane.

Those who give between May 1st and May 15th will also receive a $5 Gift Card by email, courtesy of Suburban Propane.

To make an appointment, visit, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, or call 1-800-RED-CROSS, or enable the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo Device.
