Blood Drive planned February 1-2 at SWOSU
The Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) will conduct a blood drive at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford on Monday and Tuesday, February 1-2, from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The “Rise Up & Give” blood drive will be held at the SWOSU Wellness Center.
OBI Account Consultant Melissa Santoro said appointments are encouraged to help with
flow and social distancing by calling 1.877.340.8777 or visiting obi.org. Donors will receive a “Rise Up & Give” t-shirt.
All donations by donors ages 18 and over will be tested for COVID-19 antibodies to identify potential convalescent plasma donors. If a donor has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and recovered, that donor could be eligible to donate. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to make a plasma appointment.
