At the blood drive, donors that received a COVID-19 vaccine will need to provide the manufacturer name when they come to donate. Upon vaccination, individuals should receive a card or printout indicating what COVID-19 vaccine was received and the Red Cross encourages donors to bring that card to their next donation.
There is no deferral time for eligible blood donors who are vaccinated with an inactivated or RNA based COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by AstraZeneca, Janssen/J&J, Moderna, Novavax or Pfizer.
Rotary Clubs of Jackson County and the American Red Cross are hosting an upcoming blood drive.

March is Red Cross Month. You can be part of the humanitarian mission of the American Red Cross by donating blood. For patients in the emergency room, fighting cancer or facing a life-threatening illness, help can’t wait. Healthy donors are needed now to help ensure that patients have lifesaving blood products available for emergency and everyday medical treatments. The Red Cross is testing blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies. As part of this effort, plasma from standard blood donations that test positive for COVID-19 antibodies may now help current coronavirus patients in need of convalescent plasma transfusions. For more info or help scheduling, please contact your ARC Rep Christina at 541.261.0177.
The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.
Thank you for supporting the American Red Cross blood program!
