Two blood drives were originally planned to take place in Sweetwater on Thursday, March 14.

Recent changes have been made that will streamline the donation process. There are now 13 fewer screening questions and there are only 18 medications that will temporarily or permanently defer a donor. Donors do not have to bring a list of medications, since there is no longer a need for documentation. There is now a two year deferral after completion of treatment for most types of cancer (previously five years). There is no deferral following a tattoo or piercing if the procedure was done in a State of Texas licensed facility.
Meek Blood Center must collect 60 pints of blood each day in order to supply blood to seventeen area hospitals, including Rolling Plains Hospital.
Those who have eligibility questions can speak with a Meek Blood Center technician at 325-670-2798.
