Thank you to everyone who participated in Tuesday’s blood drive – a total of 42 units were donated! The Town of Bridgewater will host our next blood drive on Tuesday, May 25 at Arey Assembly Hall from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Your blood donation is essential to maintaining our community’s health!
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.
