Dear Blood Donors,

Important  information to get you well prepared before donating blood. Who can donate blood in Vietnam?

You can donate blood if you:

  • are healthy
  • weight from 45
  • are aged between 18 and 60 (according to Circular 26/2013/TT-BYT from MOH)

Before Your Donation:

  • Don’t stay up too late the night before. Eat a healthy meal or light breakfast before donating blood. DO NOT drink wine, beer, coffee and milk before donating blood.
  • Remember to bring your ID or passport
  • Wear clothing with sleeves that can be raised above the elbow.

During Your Donation:

  • Let the person taking your blood know if you have a preferred arm and show them any good veins that have been used successfully in the past to draw blood.
  • Relax, talk to other donors or read during the donation process.

After Your Donation:

  • Receive your gift before leaving the event.
  • Drink more water and avoid alcohol over the next 24 hours.
  • Keep the strip bandage on for the next several hours.
  • To avoid a skin rash, clean the area around the strip bandage with soap and water.
  • If the needle site starts to bleed, apply pressure to it and raise your arm straight up for about 5-10 minutes or until bleeding stops.
  • Do not do any heavy lifting or vigorous exercise for the rest of the day

More kind words and simple gestures can go a long way to show someone else you care. Scheduling a blood donation appointment today at 1900636922 is a life-changing act of kindness. Let’s do more, together.
