Hall of Service Blood Donors and Charles Drew Donation Center 2021

February 10, 2021. Hall of Service, American Red Cross National Headquarters, Washington, DC. Blood donor proudly shows off bandaged arm after giving with the American Red Cross to help patients in need.

The American Red Cross is asking Vermonters to roll up their sleeves and give blood and platelets as hospitals around the country continue to suffer from blood shortages.

Donors will be thanked by being entered into a raffle to win a VIP trip to the sold out Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Donors will also get a four-month free trial of Apple Music if they are new subscribers.

Most vaccinated Vermonters can donate, although it is important to know the manufacturer of the vaccine to determine eligibility. Common manufacturers include Pfizer, Johnson and Johnson and Moderna.

The Red Cross has been distributing 12 percent more blood products to U.S. hospitals than this time last year. One thousand additional blood donations a day are estimated to be needed to end the shortage.
