Town of Bridgewater is hosting its second blood drive of 2021 on March 30 at Arey Assembly Hall from 12pm-6pm. Your blood donation is essential to maintaining our community’s health. Did we forget to mention that Red Cross is testing all blood for the COVID-19 antibodies!
Go to https://www.redcrossblood.org/ or download the Blood Donor app on your smart phone and join the “Bridgewater Gives!” team.
The Red Cross is following FDA blood donation eligibility guidance for those who receive a COVID-19 vaccination. If you receive a vaccine, knowing the name of the manufacturer (e.g. Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson and Johnson) is important in determining your eligibility. In most cases, there’s no deferral time if you receive a vaccine.
