UCI Blood Drives
Wednesday, July 15 and July 29
9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
University Hills Community Center
Face Coverings Required
University Hills is sponsoring a series of blood drives with the UCI Medical Center. In order to maintain social distancing, appointments are required (click link above to make your appointment). Everyone who donates will receive their choice of a t-shirt or a certificate for a pint of Baskin Robbins ice-cream.
As Orange County’s only level 1 trauma center and comprehensive cancer center, UCI Medical Center transfuses 1,000 units of blood each month to patients. The need for blood is especially critical now, due to the shortage caused by COVID-19.
At UCI, we are sensitive to your Coronavirus-related concerns. We have made some changes to our processes to ensure the safety of both donors and staff during this time. In order to maintain social distancing, we are scheduling 50% less donors and conducting medical histories in individual tents outside, instead of on the bus. Our employees go through a health check prior to starting their shift and we will take every donor’s temperature prior to them stepping into the donation area. We have intensified our intervals for routine cleaning and both staff and donors are required to wear masks.
We look forward to seeing you at the upcoming blood drives. Thank you in advance!
