Join us for the next Rizzuto Blood Drive at Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center!
Be sure to grab this year's Rizz Show Blood Drive T-Shirt - hand drawn and designed by King Scott!
Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center (MVRBC) is a not-for-profit blood center that provides blood and blood components to 25 hospitals in the St. Louis metropolitan region.
Every day, patients at St. Louis-area hospitals receive blood transfusions that come from donors who volunteered to give blood at a Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center donor center or mobile blood drive.
THIS EVENT IS APPOINTMENT ONLY
To maintain a safe, hygienic environment at Donor Centers and blood drives:
- All staff and donors are now required to wear a face covering while inside Donor Centers or participating in a mobile blood drive. Paper masks will be provided for those who arrive without their own mask or facial covering.
- Donors are now required to make appointments for donation. To maintain social distancing and appropriate donor flow, walk-ins will only be accepted when an appointment slot is available.
- Potential donors who in the last 14 days have been within 6 feet of someone who has a COVID-19 infection or is being tested for the virus for greater than 15 minutes without use of personal protective equipment are asked to refrain from donation.
- Prior to donation, donors are screened for symptoms of illness (body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, and hemoglobin level all are checked, and the donor completes a pre-donation Donor History Questionnaire).
- When possible, donors are asked to complete the Donor History Questionnaire online on the same day as their donation (see www.bloodcenter.org/EarlyQ)
- Staff have added space between chairs in screening areas and in the post-donation refreshment area. Between donations, staff wipe down chairs and surfaces to maintain a safe, hygienic environment
Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center is a not for profit, community based independent Community Blood Center, serving over 80 hospitals. Volunteer blood donors provide a critical, lifesaving resource that can come from no other source. Join the effort to help save lives by giving blood at the Point Blood Drive!
