Due to our response to COVID-19, all blood donations at MD Anderson Blood Donor Center locations are being held by appointment only to help control donor flow and manage the amount of individuals in one room. We must also be cautious about accepting donors who may have traveled from high case load areas. Therefore, anyone who has traveled internationally or to any state outside of Texas in the past 14 days will not be able to donate.
It is safe to donate blood during this time. COVID-19 is not a bloodborne disease. It’s a respiratory virus, and there has been no evidence that COVID-19 could be transmitted or contracted through a blood donation or a blood transfusion. Your blood donation will help ensure an adequate blood supply for our patients during this critical time.
Platelet donors - please do not take any aspirin or aspirin-containing products (ibuprofen, Advil, Motrin, Nuprin, Aleve, Excedrin) or herbal supplements (ginger, ginkgo-biloba, ginseng) during the 48 hours prior to your donation.
Please review our current locations and operating hours below.
