Blood Services have opened a new site for blood collection at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre, 102 Greenview Ave. Their first event will be held on Friday, March 12 from 3 to 7 pm with openings for 100 appointments. Every appointment must be filled to ensure hospital patients get the blood they need, when they need it.
Despite the current situation, the need for blood products doesn’t stop. Every day, they are needed for patients undergoing surgery, cancer treatments, and to save lives following traumas such as motor vehicle accidents.
It’s also important to note that Health Canada confirmed leaving home to give blood is allowed even during lockdown. Canadian Blood Services is recognized as an essential service by the provinces and territories during this pandemic.
