LAS VEGAS BALLPARK® HOSTS VITALANT BLOOD DRIVE THIS SUNDAY

 

WHAT:  Las Vegas Ballpark®, in partnership with Vitalant, the largest blood provider in Nevada, will host a one-day blood on Sunday, March 7. The public drive takes place in the Playstudios Club (located inside the Ballpark) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

 

There is a critical need for those with O Positive and O Negative blood types as a result of the thousands of blood drives that continue to be canceled due to the pandemic.

 

Donors must make appointments in advance at www.bloodhero.com sponsor code: lvballpark and are encouraged to keep social distance recommendations.  Per state mandates, masks are required for entry into the facility and temperature checks will be enforced.

 

Vitalant is providing COVID-19 antibody testing with every successful donation.  Donors will receive the results within two weeks.  Donors that receive positive results can then choose to aid in the fight against COVID-19 by donating convalescent plasma, the only antibody treatment available for critically ill COVID-19 hospital patients.  For those who have recovered from COVID-19, Vitalant will also be collecting convalescent plasma donations at this blood drive. Appointments are strongly recommended.

Sunday, March 7
